We met Kevin at the first Dad 2.0 Summit last year, but we have long admired his work on his own award-winning blog and as a contributor to the amazing DadCentric.com. As you can see from Kevin’s bio below, he has built a career as a blogger, journalist, writer and editor to fit around his role as an at-home dad of two kids (and a dog).
As editor, Kevin will take the lead on developing content. He will be creating an editorial calendar and will collaborate with contributors, old and new. Kevin will also help us deepen our relationships with partners like Good Men Project and Huffington Post Parents and help us develop relationships with new partners to strengthen our voice.
Thank you to Kevin for joining our team!
Kevin McKeever makes copy sing for Write On, Kevin! McKeever Communications, a one-man shop that provides writing and editing services for individuals and businesses. This occurs in between his duties as at-home dad to a brood of three: a newly minted teenage girl, a big-for-his-age tween boy, and a Labrador retriever known for explosive poops and losing large chunks of his fur.
Kevin also pens a newspaper column for Hearst Connecticut Media Group that has won multiple statewide awards and barely subsidizes his microbrew habit. His personal blog Always Home and Uncool (http://AlwaysHomeAndUncool.com) for the past two years has been named a Top 50 Dad Blog by Disney-owned Babble.com. He also contributes to the popular parenting blog, DadCentric (http://DadCentric.com). His work has been featured in USA Today, Canada’s Globe and Mail, the New York Daily News, The Huffington Post and landfills worldwide.
Before starting his own business, Kevin helped create the employee communications program for one of the largest residential builders in the United States. He successfully managed that program for nearly nine years, the last three as a work-at-home dad 1,500 miles from the corporate office.
Prior to all that, Kevin toiled as a journalist for daily newspapers for longer than he wants to admit. He won several statewide awards for feature writing and general reporting during those years. Then he meet a Midwestern girl on her own and his life changed for the better.
Kevin, a lifelong Connecticut suburb boy, loves the New York Mets to a fault, takes his martinis up with a twist and devotes spare time to raising funds for The Cure JM Foundation (http://curejm.org), an all-volunteer nonprofit aiming to eradicate juvenile myositis – a rare autoimmune disease his daughter has been dealing with since age 2.
