What students say

"Matt was my mentor during my UX Academy. With his guidance, I managed to deliver two great case studies I am very proud of. He is knowledgeable on various aspects of the design field and it has been extremely helpful to receive his feedback. He always offered insightful suggestions on the work I produced and challenged me with questions I had not considered. He is also very approachable, attentive and very accommodating. Overall, he is an incredible mentor, designer, and person and I am incredibly grateful to have been paired with him."

"Matt has been one of the best mentors I've come across. He has a lot of practical knowledge which is exactly what any course cannot convey. He is also concise and easy to understand - valuable traits from a software engineers perspective. He's also a great guy to talk with. I could write a lot more but I'll simply say nothing to improve/change, Matt is awesome!"

- Peter Dev, Design 101 v1
