Since most of you out there probably have no idea who I am, or will never collide with my other online properties, I guess now would be the time to introduce myself. My name is Chris but my DJ name and online persona is Dj RyB (pronounced Dee Jay Ry-Bee). This might seem random, but I think the background is necessary since you will see lots of connections to my former life on DjRyBPlus3.com.
I began DJing back in college around 1998 and continued on for the next 10 years until I retired from my regular DJ'n gig and decided to focus on my Sales career, and eventually start a family. During my DJ life, things were good, as I had some extra spending money to buy all things I wanted but didn't really need like Sneakers, Clothes, video games, and gadgets.
Fast forward another 7-8 years and things are going pretty well but extremely different. I've got a nice life with a beautiful wife, 3 awesome boys, a good job, and a nice house. I can't complain one bit but I honestly never thought this is where my life would be at this point in time.
Anyhow, the point of this site is to put my unique thoughts on paper, give a different vibe on the under-served Dad perspective online, and hopefully provide some advice, tips, and guidance for other fathers and families that might be dealing with similar issues. I'm sure there are a lot of other guys out there that grew up in the 80s and went to college in the late 90s that will be familiar with a lot of the things I talk about.
I've tried almost every child related product and gadget known to man so hopefully my mistakes and experience provide some value to at least a few people out there. My life and family are crazy but I wouldn't change a thing. Hopefully you enjoy what I share, when I actually have time to post something in between working 9-5 every day, then coming home and changing diapers, potty training, breaking up fights, and anything else you can think of when you are dealing with a working wife and three young kids at home.
