About Matthew Logelin
Born and bred in Minnesota, Matt Logelin was a project manager at Yahoo! until he left the company to focus on writing this book and raising his daughter, Madeline. The two live in Los Angeles, traveling often to see as much of the world as possible. Now Netflix is taking Matthew’s book, Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love and turning it into a movie starring Kevin Hart called Fatherhood. As Father’s Day approaches this is a movie that focuses on love, loss, acceptance and knowing when to ask for help. I really enjoyed the movie and there were a lot things I could relate to in the world of fatherhood.
