OWTK: WAY MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER A DADDY BLOG
Jeff is a dad of two remarkable pre-teen daughters who inform nearly everything he does as a writer, podcaster, and photographer. He’s written for Esquire, Cosmo, Good Housekeeping, Scary Mommy, Huffington Post, PBS, and Family Vacation Critic, to name several. Jeff’s blog that you are reading now, Out With The Kids (OWTK), turns 10 in the spring of 2016 and for many of those years OWTK was a moderately large fish in the teensy weensy pool of independent kids music coverage. In fact, some of Jeff’s first paying freelance work came as a result of this small niche, interviewing artists and writing kids music reviews for iVillage, Time Out New York Magazine (for whom he once walked the red carpet covering the Grammy Awards) and others. Nowadays Jeff has moved on to tell stories of family travel, cars, food, heath & exercise, sports (specifically European football), and culture for his own site and many others. Jeff lives just outside Philadelphia, PA with his daughters, loving wife and two hungry cats.
In 2015, both Mashable and The Huffington Post named OWTK one of the best dad blogs of the year, while Buzzfeed said that the OWTK Instagram feed is one all parents should be following.
