Edwin Lee is Design Lead at WeWork Labs.

For over a decade, Edwin has worked alongside strategists, user researchers, and fellow designers to help companies develop new products ideas and place people at the center of the design process.

He co-founded Ghost Lab—an independent design studio combining design thinking and design craft—to prototype early-stage product designs and brand identity systems.

He currently works at WeWork Labs—the We Company’s global innovation platform. WeWork Labs provides opportunities for early-stage startups and forward-thinking enterprise companies to connect with fellow entrepreneurs, mentors, and provides access to education resources and programming needed to scale their business.

Edwin is dad to his 5-month-old son.

In this episode, Edwin wades through the fog and “firsts” of early fatherhood. Blurry-eyed and sleep deprived, Edwin explains how he and his wife share the demands (and the doting) in these early days; the importance of paternity leave for perspective and prioritization; and how he plans to sidestep traditional “Korean dad” tendencies through open affection and open-mindedness when it comes to his son’s career choices.
