What students say

"Steven is an engaged, enthusiastic mentor who thinks critically about student work. He provides pointed feedback and tailors his suggestions to skill level and experience. "

- Stefanie Schwemlein, Design 101 v1

"From a feedback perspective, Steven was helpful when we had a chance to talk over the phone. The exercises weren't quite was I was looking for and Steven helped me think about design in ways that were more applicable to my needs. "

- Nikhil Daftary, Design 101 v1

"Steven has been an incredibly supportive and encouraging mentor. He gives thoughtful and detailed feedback which has helped me grow as a designer. Thanks Steven!"
