Hi, I’m Blake.Β 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 two touring bicycles and zero cars.
