Welcome to My Story

I know what you are thinking… do we really need another blog written by a dad. writing about dad things? Probably not.

I hope to offer something a little different than everyone else. First off, this is my story and no one else’s. Second, I am a little different than most.

Let me bring you up to speed.

I have been married for 20 years. It has been the best and the worst 20 years of my life. My wife is my best friend and the only reason I am still standing.

I have three boys… and they are out of control crazy. Awesome, but crazy. Everyday is an adventure for us. The all play club soccer, they all play instruments, and they love being outside doing man-things.

I have two dogs, a GSP and a Weimaraner.

I live in Orlando, Fl. and I work for DCF as a Child Protective Investigator. Helping people put more tools in their toolbox is why I go to work everyday.

I like mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, camping, climbing, running, functional training type workouts, coffee, beer, and whiskey. I eat a plant based diet.

I am in generally good health, but my doctor recently identified I struggle with adrenal fatigue. This means I have recently had a change in diet and exercise routines. It also means, I am paying way more attention that I used to pay to stress and its effects on me.

This is my story and I want to share my story with you, because maybe your story is similar to mine. Maybe we can build each other up. Maybe this is another ‘dad blog.’ At least it’s a ‘dad blog’ with my stories and things I’ve learned along the way.

I started using #therecklessdad a few years ago when I realized life as a dad is totally out of control and reckless at times. I try to recklessly throw myself into everything I do, especially being a dad.

Welcome to my story.
