The Dad & Designer

Dan Mall

For the final guest of the season we brought Dan Mall on the show to talk about his life, professionally and personally.

Dan has done a lot in his life and he was incredibly open in sharing it with us. In a nut shell, we talked about his “failed” attempt as a 3D animator, producing work that isn’t good enough, working with greats like Jeffrey Zeldman, the illusions of job security and handling the stress of freelancing while supporting a family.

Outside of his professional life we talked about why Dan works (hint, his kids), how he breaks up his day and the loving story of how he met his wife. This episode will go down for us as one of our favorites so we hope you enjoy it too!
