What students say

"Sam was a very good mentor. Accessible and easy to communicate with (even with a 13 hour time difference!). His comments were very helpful and constructive. He definitely guided me to get more out of the course."

- Prabu Weerasinghe, Design 101 v1

"Sam was very helpful and answered a lot of my questions. I also appreciate how he listens to me and quickly understand what I'm talking about. He has given me solid and practical advice which echoes a lot about his professional experience in design industry. Thanks Sam! Until next time."
