About THE Daddicus Rex

Daddicus and Chloe


I am a mid 30’s father of two beautiful daughters who mean the world to me and a wonderful wife who has supported me through circumstances most spouses couldn’t or wouldn’t. I retired around a year and a half ago from my first profession and have been adjusting to the life of a stay at home dad back in my home state of Texas! I tell you for those who haven’t done and it and have a spouse who is or has done this, it ain’t as easy at looks. I take the little free time I have and constantly try to learn, improve, and create. I have taken on the learning of investing and the markets through some genuinely brilliant individuals. I cook most meals now so that I can experiment with my skills in the kitchen and my favorite place, my grill. I am improving greatly if a four year old, seven year old and a wife who is an amazing cook herself are to be believed. I love the gentle art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and have taken it up within the past year. I find such a sense of peace when I am on the mat being twisted into a pretzel…way better than yoga. I have two great dogs and love listening to podcasts (usually about true crime). Lastly, I love the crazy making, insane, beautiful, agonizing, lovely tromp through the garden of life as the roses behind me are trampled into the ground. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I do.
