My Mission

I struggled with poor health for decades, but my oldest son’s autism diagnosis started me down an alternative path. It was a path that taught me how to better care for him. Not only that, it was a path that showed me how to better care for myself as well. Now, I want to help others find that path and teach them what I have learned.

My mission is simple. I want to make the road to better health & healing easier for all families.

ImSimplyaDad.com is geared towards parents and families. As an autism Dad, a good portion of my writing relates in some way to special needs parenting, but anyone looking to improve their health and wellness can benefit from my site.

Clean Eating

The road to good health & healing starts with diet. Eating well doesn’t have to be hard, and it doesn’t have to taste like cardboard.

Here are a few of my favorite posts:

Healthy Living

Healthy living starts by limiting toxins and eating a clean diet. However, the happiest people are those that sleep well, practice gratitude, & live in the present.
