What? Your Brown Gothamite Was Profiled in Real Simple Magazine!

A few months ago, I found out through the NYC Dads Group that Real Simple Magazine was planning an article on stay at home dads. Although I knew it was a major magazine, when I found out that my wife and mother love it, I knew I had to pursue it. So, I reached out to the writer doing the piece, shared my story and a picture of my family. And, I waited. I certainly didn't expect to hear back from the magazine. Then, I did. I was actually in a restaurant in New Oxford, PA in July having lunch with my ladies, my mother-in-law, and my "aunt-in-law". I happened to check my e-mail and there it was. An e-mail from the reporter saying I was part of a handful of at home fathers they were to profile in a fall edition of the magazine. What? Yeah, we were pretty excited. I even had a bacon donut to celebrate. (Don't knock it 'till you try it.) So, there was a phone interview that included my wife, Jenelle and a photo shoot with Henry Leutwyler who published a book of photos of Michael Jackson artifacts and photographed Misty Copeland (so, Camilla loved him). There was a moment when we found out that the dads being profiled were reduced to 3, but I was still one of them! The process was really fun and interesting. We even had a fact checker who read parts of the article to Jenelle and me to make sure we were accurately profiled. We thought so. I hope you will check out the November 2014 Real Simple for my profile and the profile of two other great at home dads. What an honor to have been a part of this project and the continued efforts to spread awareness of the SAHD movement. It is pretty surreal to have my voice and story be included in all of this. It has been one wild week for your Brown Gothamite.
