Dads are pretty cool dudes. But some of those dads out there are cool dudes with super cool jobs, too. Jobs that might involve whipping up some fantastic food, creating awesome entertainment, owning a killer tourist attraction, or being a world champ, for starters. Red Tricycle wants to give major props to the great pops out there who do it all in the work place and at home.

Ben Silbermann

You can thank Cool Dad Ben for those awesome pinboards you’ve got going. Yup, your dream home board, your I-wish-I-was-that-crafty board, your amazing photo board, it’s all the brainchild of Pinterest co-founder and CEO Ben Silbermann. Hailing from Des Moines Iowa, and working at Google before founding the site that now has over 20 million “pinners” this cool dad was a collector of things as a kid, everything from bugs to stamps. A recent new father, Ben and his wife Divya even used Pintrest to design his son’s nursery in their home in Palo Alto.
