Mentoring

How can I help?

I have been incredibly lucky to have had great mentors over the course of my design career. They’ve taught me lessons and advice I still use to this day. I wish to return the favor back to the UX community at large.

For the last 3 years, I have mentored cohorts of UX practitioners enrolled in Beginex. I’ve taught ‘Intro UX’ course at General Assembly. All the while, I continue to speak on panels around NYC and virtually on design processes and tips on entering this lucrative field.

Sometimes, I find the time to update my /resources page.

I am always happy to help UX designers. I can provide my focus and time in a more engaging manner if you’re looking for job search preparedness or overseeing of a side-prject. Get in touch with me if you think I can be of service. I look forward to meeting you.

How a mentorship can help you

Find a UX job

I can assess your situation, resume, and portfolio. I have a lot of experience helping those who are seeking to break into UX from another industry or transition from graphic/web design.

Career advice

Increase your confidence in your job search with support and advice from a mentor. Learn from a seasoned designer how to evaluate job opportunities. I am happy to run through mock interviews or white board challenges.

Project oversight

When working on a Bootcamp or passion project, I can help with insights and materials so that you can fully emerge yourself in learning. You’ll be getting insights into how senior UX designers think and work.

Resources

One of the best things about the human-centric design industry is that there is an abundance of information to continue learning.

Furthering my professional knowledge is a personal strength. I share a lot of my favorite resources, such as books, podcasts, and professional organizations in a dedicated page. Freel free to bookmark it as it’s frequently updated.
