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.

Mark Boomershine

You might recognize atlanta artist Mark Boomershine from the glossy best-dressed lists or society pages he graces with beautiful bag-designing wife Cinda by his side, but it is pop-art paintings that really leave an impression. Dad to baby daughter Calypso Belle, this fashionable father is one dapper dad.
