We're still celebrating Father's Day with our stylish dad photo contest over on Facebook (have you entered?). Earlier today we talked to Steven Alan about being a dad and now we're chatting with DwellStudio president Joshua Young about his experience on becoming a father.
(Joshua stand paddling with Isabelle and William.)
Q: How has becoming a dad changed your outlook on life?
A: Upended all my priorities; my life revolves around my kids and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Q: What’s the life philosophy/approach to life that you what to impart to your kids?
A: Be an individual and true to yourself. Experience nature and travel the globe.
Q: What’s your best dad moment? Any anecdotes?
A: One thing will always stand out - I was skiing out west with my daughter, and she skied on her own for the first time right beside me, top to bottom of a big mountain. I was awestruck. The most important thing I have learned as a dad - work will always be there and so will your friends that matter, so make the time to take them to school, go on a field trip and be on the sidelines cheering. It’s only a finite period of time and it’s wonderful.
