Hi! My name’s Leigh. I started DadGeek.co.uk as a kind of showcase of all the stuff that we do as a family and my experience of being a dad. Since I was a kid I’ve been a gamer and a tech-geek. In my adult life I became an IT professional. In my late twenties I became a father. These are all huge influences in my life and DadGeek.co.uk is a wager that I’m not the only one.
Through this site, my hope is that we might inform, entertain and maybe provide insight to other geeky dads. We love playing games, unboxing cool stuff, going on trips and making videos. I also tend to write some longer-form articles about a number of subjects usually loosely related to parenting.
This place represents my passion for being a dad and for passing on my geeky obsessions to my kids and hopefully to inspire them to develop their own.
Our youngest son has Autism Spectrum Disorder and although I’m not primarily an ‘autism blogger’, you’ll likely see me talk about it a lot if you read the blogs. We’re fierce proponents of autism acceptance and have seen first-hand the pressures (but also the joys) of having autism in our family.
