Becoming a parent has been the most profound experience of my life -- simultaneously the hardest and most rewarding thing I've done. As we've been reconsidering notions of masculinity in today's society, I went in search of the "Modern Father."
I was a stay-at-home dad for nine months in San Francisco before heading to grad school. I remember those first days my wife went back to work like being thrown out in the wilderness. There didn't seem to be a map to help me navigate it all.
I wanted to capture that moment and talk to other dads about what being a father meant to them. Maybe along the way we could glean some insight about the greater state of fatherhood today.
