#Alan#

Based in Nomad

I am a business / product designer with a focus on design thinking through a development lens. I have 10+ years experience and I am currently Managing Director at Innospace Lab - a Design Thinking and Innovation Consultancy. Previously I founded a funded social impact startup (The Impact Engine - YCombinator for social impact startups) and was a visiting researcher at Stanford University.

What students say

"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. He was able to delve into topics that the lectures merely touched upon. He clearly explained concepts and related them to one another. He was great to talk to and learn from! "

- Katie F, UX Research & Strategy

"He was great!! Very knowledgeable."

- Sarah K, UX Research & Strategy

- Diana M, Design 101 v1

"Great mentor with great experiences. I feel pretty lucky to have Alan as my mentor. He always went beyond my work and find a way to challenge my ideas to push the process further. "

- Nicolas H, UX Research & Strategy

"Alan is very thorough with his feedback and very attentive to submissions. He is quick to answer questions through email. He makes things easy to understand for someone of my experience level, and I don't feel embarrassed to ask questions when I don't know something basic. I would absolutely recommend him!"

- Madi W, Design 101 v1

"Alan was awesome. Very positive, enthusiastic, and helpful."

- Matt P, Design 101 v1
