Hi there! I still consider myself fairly new to UX/UI and product design. I had to learn FAST what the best UX courses are, the software, design principles and best practices, how to prepare for job interviews, how to land my first (and second and third) job, and finally how to succeed and thrive in my new career. I have an inquisitive mind coupled with a determination to learn and grow as a designer so if you’re looking for a mentor who is armed with a wealth of practical advice and still remembers what it’s like to be a novice, get in touch 🙂
