Work. Changing diapers. Late night supermarket runs. Talking your toddler down from another meltdown. Rubbing your wife’s shoulders when you sense she needs it more than a kiss or a hug. I’ve been there, and now I want to help you lead a more balanced life by learning from my mistakes!
At Daddylibrium you’ll find product reviews aimed at fathers, parenting lessons learned from long days and longer nights and even a recipe or two to make dinner time a breeze. Visit Daddylibrium and you’ll gain practical tips on caring for your children, keeping your marriage in good shape and even enjoying some quality time with your friends.
I’m an award-winning journalist, nationally recognized film critic, radio commentator and father of two remarkable boys, Elijah and Benjamin. I was named one of five featured bloggers at the 2014 Dad 2.0 Summit, and I presented tips on fusing blogging with journalism at the 2013 WordCamp Denver.
You can find me on the major social media sites:
I’ve written for a number of prominent news outlets, including The Denver Post, 5280 magazine, The Washington Times and People magazine. I currently serve as pop culture editor at LifeZette.com.
You can hear my movie reviews on “The Mike Rosen Show” on Denver’s all-talk station 850 KOA, WTOP-FM in Washington, D.C., “The Walker Daniels Show” on The Big 94.5 Country in Topeka, Kansas. I also appear each week on “Garrison” in Indianapolis and “The Michael Brown Show” on 630 KHOW in Denver.
Other radio work include appearances on “The Dennis Miller Show,” “The Hugh Hewitt Show” and D.C.’s “Mornings on the Mall.” I previously contributed movie reviews to “Good Day Colorado on FOX 31/Denver and offered my insights on Hollywood to the Fox Business show “Stossel.”
Christian is a great writer and thinker, which is reflected in his work at The Washington Times and as a free-lance movie critic. I actively seek out Christian’s work, because his writing always opens me up to new perspectives — and because it’s fun to read how he challenges the usual herd of criticism. Tireless and enterprising, Christian long ago earned my enthusiastic recommendation — Jim Lakely, Communications Director at The Heartland Institute

Here’s a little more about me:
I graduated from Radford University with a Bachelor of Science in Art, but I shifted gears to pursue a writing career and never looked back. I’ve worked at The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, George Washington University and The Washington Times.
My wife and children are proud Denver residents. In my spare time I bike, hike, watch movies and offer dual loyalties to the Yankees and Rockies.
Daddylibrium.com uses the WordPress blogging platform and currently runs on the Modern Blogger Pro theme via Bluehost. I recommend the web hosting site for its super-helpful live chat service. It’s essential for bloggers (like me) who don’t understand the tech side of the business.
