Mentoring

Talk to me about your design career

I'm a volunteer mentor reserving some of my working hours to coach researchers and designers. The people I speak with are a diverse, friendly bunch: seasoned practitioners with specific problems at the office, newbies looking for a portfolio review, mid-weight designers looking for a raise, and anyone in between. You may book a session with me any time through ADPList.
