My name is Matthew M. F. Miller, and I am a dad. After beginning our journey to conceive in June 2006, my wife Constance and I got saddled with nothing more than a hastily purchased Pottery Barn nursery set and a plethora of negative pregnancy tests until we became pregnant via IVF in July 2008.
I am the author of two books, Dad’s Guide to Pregnancy For Dummies and Maybe Baby: An Infertile Love Story and on the side I am the lead singer of an alt-rock band called Urgency, which sounds a bit like the love child of Tori Amos and R.E.M.
Constance is a research manager for a large non-profit organization. She is also the most beautiful, wonderful, smartest woman I’ve ever met.
Married in August of 2002, we have traversed the country in pursuit of graduate degrees - Constance at the University of Minnesota, me at the University of Southern California - but have since settled in Chicago. Having purchased our first condo right before the real estate market collapsed, we’re living on a strict budget that barely keeps me in iTunes and coffee.
Thanks so much for taking the time to learn a bit about us - I appreciate you reading my work.
