Andy Herald is co-founder of HowToBeADad.com, an entertainment experience for parents, non-parents, or anyone who’s ever had parents really.

When he does attempt to use the written word, it’s more like storytelling with the occasional use of emojis and the frequent use of typos. His goal as a creative is simple: to make people laugh. One digital armpit fart at a time.
