As Seen In
There are a few people who I talk about often in my articles. Here’s a quick bio of each:
Jay: aka TheHubs. This is my guy. We’ve been together since 1998. He’s the ying to my yang. We love movies, adventure, and lifehacking. It’s almost creepy how well we can read each others minds.
Kit: aka Kit Kat, my 7 yo nephew. He’s Batman Jr. with his epic detective work. Nothing gets by him, ever. Kit once asked me if I could find him a toy lightsaber, but definitely not a real one, because those can hurt people, and he just wants to play.
Henry: aka Oh Henry, my 3 yo nephew. Picture a toddling Mowgli from the Jungle Book, and you have Henry. He might have already seen more YouTube videos than you ever will.
