Racing A Toyota Sienna and Learning Things I Already Knew

There’s no logical explanation for the opportunities I’ve been granted over the past 18-24 months. This crazy dad blog/social media/photography life has taken me to some superb places and along the way I’ve met some even more superb people while doing, frankly, some ridiculously rad things (like racing a Toyota […]

MUST WATCH: Santigold Can’t Get Enough Of Myself Interactive Music Video

My girls and I are obsessed with Santigold right now. OBSESSED. My oldest and I are seeing her perform in Philly this coming Sunday night but until then we’re basically watching her incredible interactive video for “Can’t Get Enough of Myself”, the lead single from Santigold’s new album $.99, over […]

I still produce the monthly OWTK music podcast (new episode for April 2016 is now live!) but the volume of kid’s music being played in my home has decreased significantly over the course of the past few years. At the height of my and my family’s decade-long involvement in the […]

From Disparate Childhoods to a Dynamite Marriage

From a purely geographical standpoint, my wife and I grew up in the same world. Although we didn’t know it at the time, we were exactly 26.2 miles from each other as kids. In every other category not measurable by running a marathon, however, our childhoods were worlds apart. For […]

Preparing My Body For An 84 Mile Hike Across England

The PIN of my first bank debit card spelled out the word ‘FOOD’. This wasn’t a quiet cry for help but it was also no accident. I was 13 years old and that’s precisely how I decided, of free will, large belly and sound mind, to announce my arrival into […]
