DAD TO BENNET (5) AND TRUMAN (3) What is the best part about being a dad? I love seeing their curiosity about the world and answering their “why?” questions.
What is the hardest part about being a dad? Keeping up with their limitless energy, balancing work, family and personal interests and supporting my wife.
Do you have any special “dad” routines? Giving them baths and letting them pick the songs we listen to during that time. Unfortunately we listen to a lot of "Baby Shark."
What is your most memorable “dad” moment?
The moment my sons were delivered and the doctors lifted them up – seeing and hearing them for the first time – that memory still gets to me. You realize, then, your life has a much bigger purpose; you’ve got to prepare the way for them.
Who was/is your biggest influence on your parenting style?
What is your funniest parent moment so far?
Trying to change a “blowout” diaper in an airplane bathroom, holding the baby on the table with one hand, holding the door open with one foot, and trying to get my wife’s attention for a change of clothes that I’d forgotten to bring in with me.
Do you have a special activity that you do with your kids? I like taking them out in the stroller for a run on weekend mornings. We get to enjoy being outside together and sometimes they even run a little while with me.

IN THE WORDS OF WIFE, JODI "[Brian] does about 95% of our family's cooking and has even gone fully plant based (while in the house) just for me... I still think he is the hottest man alive." Photos by SincerelyGone Photography and Nikki Rinc Photography.
I love American history and always admired Theodore Roosevelt as a father. He taught his children a love of sports and the outdoors, books and being moral people. "There are many kinds of success in life worth having," he wrote. "But for unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children… certainly makes all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison."
