Welcome to the Northern Dad blog.
I’m Damion Founde, Dad of 3, Husband, dog walker, and all-round general fixer of broken things. I was born and live in Teesside.
I write about various aspects of Fatherhood, Parenting, Family, and Lifestyle. Such as Technology, DIY, Food and Entertainment to School runs, Adoption, Memories, daily adventures, and my Dog. It’s a good idea to look through the categories and have a browse. There’ll be something of interest for everyone.
I’m very much into Food, DIY, Technology & Gadgets. Having spent 16 years in the IT industry I find technology a great interest of mine. Mobile phones, Tablets, Watches, Laptops and anything techy or gadgety. Food is my passion, I enjoy creating meals and exploring different food options to push my family to try new foods.
I’ve always been keen on fixing anything broken, this evolved over the years into being very ‘Handy’ being able to turn my hand to many creative DIY projects.
My home region of Teesside is very much industrial, it’s heritage is Steel Making, but it’s also home to some beautiful rural surroundings with plenty of places to explore. As a family we enjoy being outdoors, walking the dog & exploring.
