Freelance Writing

In addition to travel-writing at Adventures by Daddy, I also engage in writing for other websites and blogs.  I am happy to accept free-lance writing assignments.  My articles have appeared on USA Today Travel, Fox News, Parade Magazine, Huffington Post Travel, Yahoo Travel, and Western & Central NY AAA print Member Connection magazine to name a few.  If you have an idea for an assignment, do not hesitate to submit an e-mail inquiry.

Interviews and Speaking Engagements

Need a travel expert for a story?  Dave Parfitt is available for interviews, and can give the Dad perspective on family travel, Disney vacations, as well as solo travel for business.  I can talk extensively about the regions I’ve traveled to recently, training for destination marathons, and/or how to prepare and involve the family for an upcoming vacation.  I have also presented numerous times at national and international conferences, and would be thrilled to be a speaker at your event.  To request an interview or book a speaking engagement please e-mail Dave Parfitt.

We are also looking for writers to join our community of traveling families. If you have an idea for a story, send an e-mail to Dave Parfitt and we can discuss how it fits with our mission.
