welcome to density dad.

"I thought about making a joke about potholes, but I decided to pave the way for safer streets instead!"

My name is Barry Greene Jr.

I'm an urbanist and journalist hailing from one of America's oldest cities: Richmond, VA. Through my love for family, minimalism, exploration, and city planning; density dad was created.  

Launching in July 2022, we have since grown to 500+ community members. We share what's working in our cities and what needs to be changed.

We are your official home of dads for density, dadhood, and discovery.
