This Tennessee-born technology company executive just made his foray into television with a cameo on the highly acclaimed new Fox show “Love Connection” with Andy Cohen as the host. Kristian Traylor, 45, who is a single father and very involved in his daughter’s life, was the crowd favorite and was the “winner” on the latest episode which aired on August 17.  And while Traylor does enjoy the single life in Atlanta, his main focus is being a very involved and present father. And Hollywood has taken notice. He is being featured on a docu series on fathers that is scheduled to air in the winter. The show, currently untitled, spent 8 days filming Traylor going about everyday life as a single dad.  So, remember his name and his face because Atlanta can expect to see a lot more of this stand-up guy. See where this father-of-the-year and techie likes to dine, drink and unwind in Atlanta.
