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 and host a podcast about alternative education, run travel programs for teenagers, and dream up all sorts of other projects.

39 years old. California native, frequent traveler. Current owner of zero cars & two bicycles.
