Hello! I am Dion Hudnall. I am 30 years old, a husband & the father of a 3 y/o boy. I grew up a military brat, my dad served in the coast guard for over 20 years. Because of his profession, I’ve lived in Alaska, Alabama, Ohio & Louisiana.
My parents divorced when I was 14, so I lived with my mom & sister until college. I attended college at Central State University & transferred a few times before graduating from Cleveland State University.
I’m a licensed school counselor and I work in a local school district. One of my passions is to provide high school students with the support and guidance that I didn’t have growing up. I aspire to have those that will succeed me be better off than I was.
Diary of a Mad Black Dad serves my other passion. I aspire to create a space where I can open up about my experiences as a Black man, Black fatherhood, being a husband, and anything else that I experience.
I used to write frequently to express myself when I was young. I thought I was BOMB at poetry. Someone once told me I should publish a poetry book. They were gassing me up, but some of my old work should still be in my Facebook notes if you ever want to read them. https://www.facebook.com/dion.hudnall/notes_my_notes/ I do not consider myself a great writer by any means, I just want to create and share my story.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for following me. Thank you for subscribing. Diary of a Mad Black Dad was created in 2019. Since then, I have been able to share more than I ever thought I could. I am very excited to continue to share parts of me with all of my new readers and faithful readers.
