Hi, I’m Blake.

Welcome to my home on the web.

New project:

Me in 15 Seconds

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

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

California native. Working on my next book, tentatively titled Why Are You Still Sending Your Kids to School?

To stay informed about what I’m up to, sign up for my monthly email newsletter:

Recent Podcast Appearances


I interview fascinating people from the worlds of alternative and experiential education on my podcast, Off Trail Learning. Find new episodes on iTunesSoundcloud, or your preferred app.

Original Videos

In these four short videos, created in 2018, I expound on topics close to my heart. (Also available on Facebook.)

How Can I Help?

A Few Kind Words

Thanks for clicking my face. Isn’t this better than a pop-up?

Friendly reminder: I write a monthly email newsletter filled with links to fascinating articles about education, schooling, and parenting. It’s also the best way to find out whenever I publish new work or have a crazy new scheme. Sign up right here ⤵️

If you don’t sign up, it’s okay.

I’ll be okay.
