Hi, I’m Blake.

Welcome to my home on the web.

Me in 10 Seconds

I write, speak, podcast, and build community in the realms of alternative education, self-directed learning, and unschooling.

Since 2008 I’ve organized life-changing trips for teenagers through my company Unschool Adventures.

California native, frequent traveler.
