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 lots of other projects.

38 years old. California native, frequent traveler.
