I mentor students in UX & graphic design fundamentals.

Bringing experience from my time teaching university classes and community music, I aim to adopt an affiliative mentoring style—asking questions, and exploring ideas together.

Testimonials

“I was so happy with my mentor. Andrew really went above and beyond to make this a great experience for me, I couldn’t have asked for anyone better.”

Marissa, Design 101

“It all comes down to the mentor experience. He has been an invaluable resource. I loved learning from a working designer and getting to see his process. He has been encouraging and generous with his knowledge and constructive feedback. Great experience!”

Adrienne, Design 101

“Not only does Andrew leave detailed feedback very promptly after my submissions, his comments both acknowledge effort and suggest areas of improvement. I am already applying much of what he has said to both my job and my work on the course.”

Stuart, UX Academy

“Our one-on-ones felt like a collaborative process—even though I am a complete beginner I feel respected and in control of my learning. Starting in this field from scratch can make one feel a bit vulnerable, so I really appreciate the open and encouraging vibe I get from Andrew.”

Adrienne, Design 101
