About Harm

The person ‘behind’ De Goede Huisvader is me: Harm Jagerman.

In daily life I am a father of two children. I combine my family life with my business activities (photography, writing, designing and website development). 


In 2014 I came up with the idea to start a website about myself. A website that would focus on a father who stays at home and combines his work (freelancer, self employed) with the care of two children. I started to write under the pen name De Goede Huisvader. I wanted to focus on those role patterns and the need for change. Combined with some background stories about myself, my family and everything I found important.


It started in 2013

My life changed in 2013. You might say that De Goede Huisvader started in 2013. There was no website at that time, but I was a stay-at-home-dad. 

In this year I suffered from a major burn-out. I decided to quit my job and focus on my business activities and family life. 

The fact that I became De Goede Huisvader from 2014 did not mean that I would never again be employed. I worked for a short time as a consultant and online marketer. In 2018 and 2019 I was involved in the start, development and implementation of a webshop. In 2019, I decided to focus more on my business activities.

More about me

What do I do?

First of all, I am a family man. I combine this with my work as a photographer, copywriter, digital designer and website developer. More information can be found at HarmJagerman.nl.


Because I find it important to contribute to emancipation, I consider myself an ambassador for family fathers. You can read more about this via GoedeHuisvader.com.


Collaboration is extremely important to me. Especially when it comes to the content of this website. Do you have a product or service that you would like me to provide with a review? Then contact us.
