Good episode? Give it some love!
Andy Mangold is a designer and co-founder of Friends of the Web in Baltimore, MD. On today's episode, we talk about defining what kind of designer your are, what it's like to work with your friends, and how he started his first company at the age of 16!

Andy tells us about his path to his current career. He went from making rubberband guns, to falling in love with art, to finding the nexus of "making" and "art" in design. We talk about what it means to build a business in the city you live in, and how to contribute to your community in a meaningful way. Andy also discusses his privilege and how it's presented him with opportunities and the support to take risks.
