Hi, I’m Dan Anderson. You can reach me at [email protected]
I am a proud dad who lives in the Seattle area with my wife and nine-year-old son. I founded this site in 2009 and I often write about family travel, tech gadgets, food, and things to do in the Pacific Northwest. Our family also includes Jack, our lovable golden retriever.
I began writing when I was in grade school and would earn extra money by submitting my short stories to various writing contests. I knew that I was onto something when I won first place in a local newspaper’s Halloween scary story contest, and managed to horrify my conservative parents in the process. I have worked in various professional roles in corporate communications, social media, and journalism. Throughout it all, this site has remained my creative outlet and I enjoy using this forum to share my stories about family and fatherhood.
I am the author of The Family Guide to Visiting the Disneyland Resort, The Family Guide to Visiting Walt Disney World, and The Great Big Book of Dad Jokes. Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have a comment, question, or want to share a dad joke of your own.
Like any good dad, I feel obligated to share some words of wisdom before letting you go: Don’t run with scissors. Eat your veggies. Look both ways before crossing the street. Don’t send money to strangers in Nigeria. Save more than you spend. Don’t text and drive. Buy the biggest TV you can. Don’t eat yellow snow. And most importantly, if you live near Seattle (and are over 21) you should try the African Amber at Mac and Jacks Brewery.
Thank you for visiting Dad Logic!
