Hi, I’m Blake. Welcome to my little corner of the web.
🐿️ In a nutshell
I’m an advocate for self-directed learning who believes that a surprising number of kids don’t need school to become happy, competent, and successful adults.
I write books, run immersive programs for teenagers, host a podcast, and dream up all sorts of other projects.
38 years old. California native, frequent traveler. I have no permanent home base.
💭 What I’m up to
Currently on sabbatical: seeking perspective, dreaming of possibilities.
