My name is David Robert Hogg and I started My Little Nomads to share my love of travel and a conviction that traveling the world is even more amazing with kids than without.
Fifteen years ago I left my job as an Assistant Vice President at a Fortune 500 company to travel the world, start a family, and be the primary caregiver for my 2 young boys.
We’ve traveled all over the world with our kids.
And now I’m here to convince you that you should too.
Who Am I?
Seattle is my current home but I’m a Canadian by birth. I married my American wife almost 15 years ago and we’ve lived in several places before settling down in the Pacific Northwest. My 2 boys are ages 11 and 8 now and I’m certain they love traveling just as much as we do.
I started My Little Nomads in January of 2010 and it’s been an incredible experience in itself. Revisiting all the trips we’ve made with the kids and finding a community of fellow travelers.
