Michael Capuzzi, Software/Tech Salesman & Rad Dad to Ella (3) Mila (8 mos) and TBD (brewing)

Where are you from and where do you live now?

I’m from outside Philadelphia, PA and now live in Hermosa Beach, CA…the greatest place on Earth (that is factual).

How has fatherhood changed you?

Little girls have made me a little ‘softer’, but more importantly it’s given me a true purpose and focus; it’s helped me understand what’s really important in life and that I’ve got (along with my wife) the most important and awesome responsibility in the world. I am also much more comfortable with poop; more so than I ever imagined.

What’s your favorite thing about being a Dad?

I’d have to say that every new ‘thing’ that you get to see on a daily basis – a new word, expression, or gesture…it’s so cool watching them grow up and learn. I also love a good tickle-torture and watching them laugh hysterically. Finally…the anticipation of seeing them on my way home from work (or anywhere); it’s so cool that they’re thrilled to see me and run to give a hug. It’s just a whole lotta awesome.

Describe your style.

Casual/relaxed mostly, easy and comfortable. Living by the beach has virtually eliminated the need to get really dressed up, and I think that’s a good thing. I’m into cool casual clothes that are durable -- and can withstand two little girls hanging from them for about 2 hours a day. I’m also into anything that might make me appear taller.

Has becoming a Dad changed your style? How?

It’s definitely emphasized the importance of feeling comfortable and casual – both to feel good with the kids and also due to the reduction of opportunities to hit the town. I think style is not only the clothes on your body, but also the way you carry yourself; if you’re comfortable and happy with yourself and your life, it comes through regardless of what you wear. I’m so grateful and happy with my amazing wife, kids, and the life we’ve created that I’m hoping that shines through. If not I likely look really weird with a dazed smile on my tired face as I wander the streets of Hermosa.

On a Friday night out, we might find you in _______.

A casual button down and jeans, pair of wingtips. Casual, comfortable, and thrilled to be out.

On a Sunday afternoon, we might find you in _______.

A tee, flips, and Herald Hill relaxers – the most awesome and comfortable pants on the planet – I’ve got three pairs and they are in as good of shape as the day I got them…they are my ‘go to’ for any venue that doesn’t require a tie or boardshorts.

Where does your fashion inspiration come from?

My wife happens to be awesome with fashion, so I look to her for inspiration and guidance. It’s a win-win.
