Our relationship is like: Google "tough love."

The best advice my dad ever gave me was: Eat right and exercise.

Your dad’s favorite saying is: Haha I really don’t know! But my favorite thing my dad says is my childhood nickname. He has one for all of us and shouts it like a yodel - it’s hilarious.

Describe your Dad’s personal style: Laid back. Actually he’s very stylish in a classic way which I think is cool. It’s not loud but it says what it needs to say! Sometimes he kills the activewear game with some slides.

What’s his signature style item? A good pair of broken in jeans!

I realized that my dad was cool was when: He took me to see Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour! Plus realizing he doesn’t care about being cool, which is cool in itself. Also, he has jokes! He can always find something to poke fun at.

My father’s day gift to my dad will most likely be: A playlist. We have a lot of similar music taste. From Natalie Cole to Amy Winehouse - he also likes rock music as much as I do and knows a lot about the artists he respects!

I’d also be down to cook a huge spread with my younger sister. We all think we’re master chefs, Dad used to give us cookbooks growing up and, though I’m a pro, I’d probably use one of those to whip up a feast!

I love my Dad the most because: Our relationship has taught me the most important values that I’ve carry into my personal life. Don’t care what people think and really connect with people on positive things - no getting caught up! Between him and my mom it’s like a crazy master class on how to stay sane in this world. Love is the big picture!
