I started HypeDad as an expecting father who wanted to join the growing movement of more involved dads. But if you’re like me, you may not identify with most of the current “daddy” blogs out there. Many of them are as out of touch as khaki cargo shorts and seem to be fronts for free stuff and sponsorships.
Well, I’d like to change that.
I want to create a voice for culture-forward dads in flyknits. A community of eighties’ babies maintaining relevancy through fatherhood. I want to raise as many questions as I can about dads in the modern age, and maybe answer a few, too.
Perhaps you have some questions of your own? Or an answer or two? I’d love to hear from you.
A Little Background:
In case you missed my first post, my name is Cole and I’m a specialty coffee professional with a music degree. I’ve written and performed music for nearly 20 years. My day job is Director of Education at Temple Coffee, a fancy title that means I train our retail employees, wholesale clients, and teach public coffee classes (yes, that’s a thing). I also manage our website and social media accounts (naturally).
My wife is a nurse. She takes care of very sick babies. Her name is B. We’ve been married since 2009.
We have a Boston Terrier named Benson. He’s a stud. And certainly not as calm as this photo makes him out to be.
Follow along to see if I can pull off this fatherhood thing. And please, leave your comments, suggestions, advice, questions, or a list of your favorite scotches below.
