In my spare time I love to travel and spend time with my lovely wife.

I’m the writer, photographer, editor, and subject matter of 2TravelDads – a travel blog about my husband and I taking our sons out into the world and experiencing it as an LGBT family, learning about culture, having great food, and playing in the sand. I come from a career in hospitality and HR, having worked with Disney, Starbucks, Princess Cruises and Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants.

James Tryon is the Creative Director of Valet, the founder of Easily Amused, Inc, and a father of two. He’s also one of the co-organizers of WordCamp Orlando and the WordPress Orlando meetup group.

James has been in the creative industry for more than 18 years, and he has a meticulous eye for design and usability. He also possess the know-how to plan, design, and code it all if needed.

An avid collector of random awesomeness and thrift-store artifacts, he’s always finding something interesting to spark his creativity (and share with the team in Hipchat.) When he’s not working, he can be found building something, playing with toys, or hanging with friends and family.
