My Wife and I crossed paths while we were both working at the same retail store in Florida. She’ll tell you that she asked me out on our first date. I do remember her asking me out to eat as we closed the store. I’ll sheepishly admit it was a date. ;-) Regardless of how it went down, we haven’t been apart long since that first encounter involving pasta, a bottle of wine and tons of conversation. So much conversation, that the waitstaff closed the restaurant around us!
These days my family (Wife, our teenage daughter, dog Lilly, and myself) live in Greensboro/High Point/Winston-Salem area of North Carolina. Over the course of this blogging journey I have covered a lot of ground. Topically my posts run the gamut from Dad issues, to tech, travel, home improvement, and even some health/dieting.
A Bio (For PR folks)
I started blogging in 2003, as a channel for my thoughts. Since that time, it’s transformed several times to include a variety of topics. It turned out that I was one of a few “dads who blogged” before there was such a thing as dad bloggers.
I am a Dad, husband, creator, writer, entrepreneur and blogger. I am also the author of the book “Mastering Google Keep“. When not online, I can be found tackling home improvement projects, crafting Barbeque, spending time with his family and cheering on his beloved New England Patriots.
My family (Wife, teenage daughter, and dog Lilly) live in Greensboro/High Point/Winston-Salem area of North Carolina. Over the course of his 13+ year blogging journey, I have covered a lot of ground. Topically my posts run the gamut from Dad issues, to tech, travel, home improvement, and even some health/dieting. I have also written for the Good Men Project.
