Episode 53: The Carpenter
Despite his name, Mike Carpenter didn’t always embrace his design leanings. After forays into computer work, Carpenter realized his calling had been there all along. Mike founded MDC Interiors, a sustainable design company that uses unexpected elements like concrete, LED lights, and built-in spaces for succulents(!). He’s also done some sweet Art on the Beltline pieces (including one for this year) and has had smaller pieces in Scoutmob’s Shoppe.
