I am very excited to announce that Andrew Hawkins, my partner in crime and podcast co-host, will start bringing his unique perspective to the written portion of Life of an Architect. Today we start with an introduction about Andrew's history, life, and personality.
People outside our profession don't really understand how attached and committed we are to the projects we work on - at least I know this is true for me.

Changing jobs is exciting and terrifying at the same time – particularly if you are making a drastic change wither in the type of work or the size of the firm. Today we are talking about “Changing Jobs” a topic that seems somewhat fitting given that it is the first podcast episode of 2020 and both Andrew and me have changed jobs.
