Doug French

Doug French is a writer and single dad who began his personal blog, Laid-Off Dad, in June 2003. He is also co-founder of the Dad 2.0 Summit, which will convene next on Jan. 30 - Feb. 1, 2014, in New Orleans. He has been profiled in or written for The New York Times, Slate, The Huffington Post, Babble, Parents magazine, and several newspapers, and his writing has appeared in several parentcentric websites and blogging anthologies. In July 2010, he made the still-curious decision to create When the Flames Go Up, a blog about co-parenting after divorce, with his ex-wife. She and he and their two young sons live in close proximity in Ann Arbor, Michigan. You can follow him on Twitter @LOD. http://laidoffdad.typepad.com/
