My name is Brian, and I am the Dashing Dad. I am a stay at home dad of two kids. The Dashing Son is in elemetary school, and the Dashing Daughter is an infant. I grew up on a sheep farm (insert jokes here, I have heard them all) in Northern California. I eventually became a professional archaeologist, married the Dashing Wife, and now we have two kids (Dashing Son – age 7 and Dashing Daughter – age 1).
We both enjoy running and biking. The Dashing Wife completed the Goofy Challange at Disney World (half marathon on Saturday, full marathon on Sunday) in 2011, and I completed The Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon that same year and completed my third marathon during the monsoon that was the 2012 California International Marathon. I have recently ventured into ultra marathons and completed a 50k (31 miles) and a 50 miler in the first half of 2014.
A few months before the Dashing Daughter was born, I was laid off, and it made sense for me to become a stay at home dad. I found that there were very few resources for the stay at home dad.
The goal of the website is to help you keep your manhood intact, and remind your wife/partner that you are still a man. I want you to be happy and confident in this awesome job that is being a father at home. I figured my experiences may be helpful to other dads who are trying to get everything taken care of around the house while staying fit, and staying sane.

Lastly, the Dashing Dad logos were created by Lauren Daulton (http://daultonbooks.com/lauren-daulton/), who is an amazing young artist that I have known her whole life. She specializes in anime-style art, but draws some of the most awesome stuff.
