We're back with another professional interview! From Studio SOGO, Leslie Ellsworth is a firm owner, principal and mother of two. We talked about how she started her career, the difficulties she went through as a young mom at a small firm, how Studio SOGO came to be and how they're trying to do things differently in terms of increasing equity in the profession. She also offered some valuable advice for young professionals! We hope you enjoyed this conversation as much as we did. Take your notepad out, because this ep is packed with useful tips from this amazing woman in our industry!
Long-time friend Danny Griffin joins us this week to chat about his experience as a designer and M.Arch candidate at MIT! How did he find his interests in undergrad? What's the culture like at MIT? How do his interests in architecture and robotics come together? Most importantly, how did he get away with writing a children's book as a studio project?! We hope you enjoy getting to know Danny and if you're considering applying to MIT, this is a must-listen!
Why pursue an MBA after design school? How do the skills learned in business school help your architecture career? What are some differences in culture between an MBA program and a design school?

Also, stick around for the lightning round where you'll hear about him meeting and singing for the Obamas. We hope you enjoy the conversation!
