What students say

"Joe was great! Always made himself available and was really eager to help in any way that he could. I definitely didn't use him as mucha s I should have."

- Zubin Teherani, Design 101

"Joseph gave great insights above and beyond the material in the course. His feedback was awesome and I learned a ton from our mentor sessions. Thanks Joseph!"

- Christopher Curtis, UX Research & Strategy

"Joe was a great mentor! My biggest goal coming into this course, was really getting a feel for what it would be like to work as a UX/UI Designer. Joe took the time during each session to share his experience and personal examples. He gave me tons of resources for finding employment and Design related resources. For me, getting feedback and to be able to actually talk about design with someone, was the most beneficial aspect of the course. He made himself available outside of our Skype sessions too! I learned so much, thank you Joe!! :) "

- Courtney Livingston, Design 101

"Joseph was great! I am a iife-long learner and I appreciated all that he brought to the table. Not only did we cover course content, but he also taught me things that he thought I might need in the future. If you get Joseph as a mentor, you are one fortunate person!"

- Carrie Olson, Design 101
