"JJ is a really great mentor to have. He goes above and beyond in passing on skills, advice, and insights about the industry and profession to his students. He will often refer to things I've brought up in past sessions and send me articles to read outside of our sessions. He was also very forthcoming in sharing what his current work is like so that I was able to get a good picture of what a day to day in the life of a UX Designer would look like. I'm very grateful to be able to complete the program with his mentorship and feel that he contributed a lot to the ideas and insights that shaped my portfolio projects."

"JJ was a fantastic mentor! He was extremely prompt in responding to my submissions, usually he responded in much less than 24 hours. He's full of great career advice and questions to ask yourself, and he is genuinely interested in helping new designers become successful in the field."
