About the site
Pete and Marty met their first day in 2nd grade and have been best friends since.
Dadand.com is a site about their combined background in kids, home renovation, music, cars, automotive fabrication, gadgets, tools, technology, art, and life that has led them on a path that includes diapers, scrapes, scratches, plumbing, electrical, masonry, woodworking, upholstery, metal work, paint and body work, and almost everything else you can imagine.
So if it’s kids, tools, ‘56 Fords, little British cars, engines, car stereos, mid-century modern, gadgets (mechanical and digital), deck building, web design and development, ”I need a ____ that will do _____”, or anything else from their pond of knowledge (large but not deep)… drop them a line.

Pete’s a freelance designer and web guy in Rochester, NY. He’s an all-around creative guy but has been a web designer/front-end developer for most of his professional life.
He loves being a designer, but his true loves are his daughter, Emily from merrypad.com, technology, science, gadgets, nerdy crap, funny stuff, little british cars, classic british comedy (Fawlty Towers, Black Adder, Jeeves and Wooster), motorcycles, and Top Gear is his obsession right now. He used to own a 1972 Mini Cooper and a 1969 Austin Healey Sprite (that he took apart and put back together), but now he has a
1990 BMW K75 2011 Harley Nightster, Subaru Outback Sport, and a badass Honda Ruckus scooter.
His career is a piece of cake compared to what he takes on outside of agency life. He is a father of four, ages eight, three and one. Oh yeah, the three-year-olds are boy/girl twins. So he’s got plenty of advice, but won’t promise it’s good.
Marty truly believes he can do almost anything himself, at least once.
Septic drain field. Done. But never again.
Paint a car. Pssh! At least 10 so far.
Build a vacuum system to mold ½” acrylic. Please. In my sleep.
