Hi, I’m Blake.Β Welcome to my little corner of the web.

🐿️ In a nutshell

I’m a traveling writer with a lust forΒ adventure.

I believe that a surprising number of kids don’t need school to become happy, competent, successful adults: an idea I’ve expressed through my writing, podcast, and other projects.

Since 2008, I’ve designed and run teen adventure programs through my little travel company, Unschool Adventures.

40 years old. California native. Current owner of two touring bicycles and zero cars. I live a low-income, high-freedom lifestyle, filled with friends, nature, travel, and creative pursuit. My mission is to keep this spark alive and pass it along to young people.

Join my mailing list, The Adventures of Blake, for the occasional fun story and big life update.

I’m also working on a new book called Do What You Love and Die Trying β€οΈπŸ’€
