The best introduction to me, and probably to my writing as well, can be found in a Modern Love column I wrote for the New York Times.
Please note, contrary to the NYT artist’s rendering, I have never worn a three-person plaid poncho with anyone.
Or you could also watch this Today Show piece about my family that aired in October 2012.
Or you can just read this little bio:
I live with my boyfriend/partner, Drew and our twins Bennett and Sutton, who were born in August 2009. They were conceived via gestational surrogate, with eggs provided by Drew’s sister, Susie. (Yes, I provided the sperm… which I add not because I enjoy talking about my sperm with complete strangers, but because some people will wonder… and what must those people think?)
If any of this is confusing or makes you uncomfortable, then please read my blog for further detail. I promise that once you get to know us, our family makes perfect sense.
I’m currently a stay-home Dad raising my kids full-time, but while they’re sleeping, I write various other stuff, including my memoir, which comes out spring 2014 from Taylor Trade Publishing! (Title TBD, preorder info TBA, lots more info to come)
If you’re looking for somewhere to start reading, check that slider bar at the top of the home page. Those are some of my favorite posts.
Also, please follow me on Twitter and Facebook, and if you really want to, write to me. I love hearing from people, and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have about surrogacy, IVF, gay dadness, twins or where to find pictures of gorillas or cats — still my #1 search hit!
