About Nursing Daddy

Wow, I am truly honoured that you have decided to dive a little deeper into ND to find out more about me.

So, who am I?

I am the guy in the picture above with my family. I am Paul, an English man with West African ancestral links. I am a 1978 baby (Earth Horse according to the Chinese). I am blessed with a 2012 son (Water Dragon), a 2014 daughter (Wood Horse) and a 2017 son (Fire Rooster). The kids are an exotic mix of English and Swedish, with West and North African flavour!

What’s my background?

I have a doctoral degree in automotive engineering, I have played sports to a high level, and have coached some pretty good national and international athletes, which you would guess makes me a sports-mad ND. I navigated myself into sports research, leading on some major scientific projects for the biggest international sports governing body, FIFA.

So why the ND blog?

I wish I could take the credit for initiating the blog, but this accolade lies with the most humble Jean Yves, who I met while holidaying in Antigua in January 2015. I later found out Jean is the best pastry chef in Massachusetts, with a string of A-List clients. If you’re ever in Massachusetts (Lenox and Great Barrington) check him out at Patisserie Lenox.


I spoke to Jean about why I had decided, following the birth of our second child, to be a working from home dad, looking after kids in day and working during the night. Unbeknownst to me, Jean had taken a keen interest in my interactions with my kids, and took the occasion to pass me some compliments about my involvement with them. He suggested that it would be great if I could start a blog for dads on modern-day parenting. Jean felt that as I am a dad who has worked full-time, part-time and is now serving as a full-time ND I had a lot to offer. So the ND concept was born.

But the internet is awash with material on parenting, how can you possibly offer anything different?

That I think is a great question. Initially I felt the same – how could I add anything different? However, after pondering over this for a month I decided I could offer a fresh take on  family blogging. 


My aim is to discuss knowledge gained from my various roles as ND, whilst at the same time sharing a view on all things family and life. Should I be lucky enough to gain followers I am hoping that we can work together to come up with interesting questions, which I can open up to everyone in a questionnaire format and then analyse and present the findings. If you have not guessed already, there is a researcher in me trying to burst out! 


What I have in mind if it comes off is that we can all have a laugh on the way and learn from each other. My aim for ND (although the name suggest otherwise) is for mass appeal to all parents and non-parents. 


Once again, thanks for showing an interest in this blog. The web is a big place and you selected ND.
