This Dad Took More Selfies With Famous People This Year Than You Ever Will

Meet Dirty.

Doug “Dirty” Timothy runs The FADER’s New York shipping department. About a year ago, we converted his old backstock closet into a studio to make videos. So now when artists visit, they always walk by his door. At the beginning of this year, Dirty started taking selfies with people who stop by. He tags his wife in every single one. “To brag,” he said. Thanks for making our office a place where I know I’ll see a friend every day, Dirty. More life in 2017.
