About the
Day by Day Dad

I’ve spent 15 years working with people and companies to solve their issues. My penchant for problem solving and research led me to search high and low for more information on becoming a dad. The idea for the Day by Day Dad came about from the lack of information on what to expect when you’re going to be a dad. I also wanted to make sure that the information being given is positive and optimistic!

Along with expecting my first child with my beautiful wife, I have two incredible dogs and love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, ice hockey, exercising, food and much more. So follow along on this journey of a lifetime!
