IAP 2020-E7: Morten Bonde, Senior Art Director at LEGO



Mark Miller, the host, his producer Marissa, and colleague Todd Waites, chat with Morten Bonde, senior art director at LEGO. Morten describes a stressful 14-year phase during which his eyesight deteriorated due to retinitis pigmentosa and he couldn’t bring himself to accept what was happening. He recounts his “death” of who he was before he embraced his visual impairment and who he transformed into, after months of dedicated meditation and self-improvement training. Morten also discusses how his role at LEGO changed after he openly disclosed his condition and what gave him the motivation to write a book about his experience.
