Dads are like magicians. They can turn a tantrum into a tickle-fest, MacGyver a broken Barbie back to life, and can heal a boo-boo with a single smooch. There are cool dads all over Atlanta and we wanted to share a few that we think are pretty awesome. These dads juggle everything from brain surgery to building fashion brands all while making sure not to miss Saturday waffles. Here are eight papas that make Atlanta proud.

Bill Hallman

Designing dad Bill Hallman is not only the man behind the Bill Hallman and Alternative Apparel brand, but most importantly, father to fashionista-in-training Ava Hallman. “She has a knack for mixing prints,” Hallman proudly declares. “She definitely has her own style.”
