Based in Berlin, Germany

What students say

"My timing was off (too busy at work) when I started the course so I didn't get the full experience but Ron has been very patient with me and easy to get in contact with. He adjusted the program to my wishes and was able to answer all of my questions. Hope to take the course again in the future and would love a second chance with Ron as my mentor. "

- Adine T, Design 101 v1

"Ron is really amazing, he knows a ton of stuff and is really helpful. I sometimes thought the gap between his state of experience and mine is too big so that he might find it a bit tedious to work with a beginner. But if so he never showed it to me. I appreciate his feedback on my work, sometimes I had to wait a few days on it but that was ok."

- Michael M, Design 101 v1

"Although I've only had two mentor sessions with Ron so far, the knowledge and expertise gained from Ron has proven to be excellent. Knowing that I am a UX professional already, Ron has tested my knowledge and challenged my thinking, in a great way. His entrepreneurial background has also helped me in a variety of different ways. I'd thoroughly recommend him as a mentor, and would be more than happy to work with him again in the future."

- Joe P, UX Research & Strategy

"Brilliant. Breath of fresh air, and totally thinks out the box. And in turn gets the student thinking in an alternative way. Lots of insider tips and hints. "
