I’m excited to be with you this week as I am joined by a very special and meaningful guest, Thom Filicia. He is known for his role as an expert designer on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy TV show and is the top designer and founder of Thom Filicia Incorporated. He is the entire reason I am a designer today. Let’s take a look at his take on internships in the design space, what led him to become an interior designer, and one of the most discouraging parts of being a new designer.

This episode, we discuss…
