Blake Boles is the author of two books, Better Than College and College Without High School. He is the director of Unschool Adventures and the founder of Zero Tuition College.
In 2003 Blake was studying astrophysics at UC Berkeley when he stumbled upon a treasure trove of books by authors John Taylor Gatto, Grace Llewellyn, John Holt, and other pioneers in the realm of alternative education. Deeply inspired by the philosophies of unschooling and free schooling,
Blake custom-designed his final two years of college to study these subjects full-time. After graduating he began writing and speaking widely on the subject of self-directed learning. He has appeared on NPR, The Huffington Post, TEDx, and Ignite.
In Blake’s previous lives, he has worked as a high-volume cook, Aurora Borealis physics research assistant, delivery truck driver, math tutor, outdoor science teacher, EMT medic, summer camp director, market researcher, web designer, and windsurfing and tree climbing instructor. His biggest passion is sharing his enthusiasm and experience with young adults who are blazing their own trails through life. He is 30 years old.
