- Erin D, Design 101

“Alan is a fantastic mentor: open, engaging, providing absolutely spot on feedback and support with each step of my project as well as helping me stay focused on how to get to my end goal. He went above and beyond to help me gain the skills I need to improve not only for class, but to continue improving outside of class.”

- Dede T, UX Research & Strategy

“Alan was great! He was incredibly supportive throughout the course. His feedback was specific enough to be valuable, without being nit-picky.
