After a traditional public school upbringing and halfway through an astrophysics major at UC Berkeley, Blake read a John Taylor Gatto book and immediately rearranged his major to exclusively study the wide world of alternative education. He has worked as a snowboard instructor, academic tutor, marketing researcher, chef, outdoor science teacher, freelance web designer, homeschool mentor, and windsurfing instructor. He spends time living in both California and Oregon.

I'm really excited about this and wish Cliff and I had this resource about 20 years ago. Go out and make your dreams come true.
