Rad Dad Wednesday V4


Jeff Forney, Photographer


Mia (8) & Paz (5)

Where are you from and where do you live now?

Born in SF. Raised in the East Bay. Lived in NYC for 15 years and now reside in Los Angeles for the last 7 years.

How has fatherhood changed you?

How hasn’t it? It has been the most amazing experience I could ever ask for. It has taught me true love, patience, and increased a lust for life into a lust/love/'hug it forever and never let go' for life.

What's your favorite part of being a Dad?

Being a Dad. Being the sunrise and sunset for my children. And in knowing that-I have approached things differently than perhaps I would have if I were without children. It allows me to make decisions from outside of my own head and therefore make a better, patient, focused decision for my family. As a parent I have learned that everything we do and say is picked up on by our children. So it has made me a better person and given me the desire to be a better person.

Describe your style.

Cool. Not over thought but still put together. It’s a california, new york, bohemian, rock and roll vibe. Sometimes it can lean more heavily on one or the other and sometimes be all three at once.

Has becoming a Dad changed your style?

I don’t think my style has changed much. I do like that I can be a parent and still be my own style with artist leanings….to put it another way-I don’t think I thought parents could or would look like I do when I was younger. I think parents have gotten better at keeping a style while still rearing children.

On a Friday night out, we might find you in________.

Some levis and a cool comfortable sneaker. Some of my favorite t-shirts are Herald Hill. The extra length is fantastic and fabric used is amazing as well as great colors and graphics.

On a Sunday afternoon, we might find you in________.

Same thing as Friday. ;) Anything I wear can be interchanged thru the week/weekend and to night or day…just needs to look good. ;D

Where does your fashion inspiration come from?

Music, California and NYC lifestyles…70’s decade was a good one for style, cool sneaks, jeans and I always need a leather jacket close by...
