I am a passionate epic dad in training, husband, and blogger. I believe that as dads we have the epic responsibility and incredibly rewarding challenge of raising our kids. I also believe in the power of sharing our trials and triumphs as a community of epic dads in order to amplify our impact as we learn from each other.

I am an educator by trade, learner, leader and coach at heart, and father and husband at my core.
