👋 Hi!!! I run the UX teams for Gmail @ Google, based out of San Francisco.
I also teach at UC Berkeley.
I have a strong track record of helping mentees land UX jobs, mostly in big tech.

As a mentee, you’ll have hands on support from me. Our first call entails going through a career worksheet. From there, I'll dive in with written notes and a structured plan. When you leave sessions, you'll know exactly what to do next and why.

As a mentor, I can help you:
- Break into Big Tech
- Navigate a career change into UX
- Design an awesome portfolio and interview presentation
- Prepare for interviews, whiteboard challenges, app critiques, etc.
- Develop in your current role and build a personal development plan

I focus on being inquisitive, tailored to you, and above all collaborative. You’ll have a free introductory call to make sure my mentorship is the right fit!

I'm super passionate about giving back, and shaping the future community of UX designers.

Let's connect!

Earl is a great mentor. If you need assistance in finding a job or changing careers, he's the right one for you! Definitely a game changer for me.



5 out of 5 stars

Earl is such a knowledgeable, thoughtful, and passionate mentor who had an immediate impact on my job search journey. I was amazed by his wealth of knowledge, resources he provides, and pieces of advice that immensely helped me improve my portfolio, resume, and interviews. He is extremely responsive and always welcomes questions. I can’t recommend more!



5 out of 5 stars

It's about 7 months I have had Earl as a mentor and my improvement has been exponential. Earl is organised, punctual, caring, all combined with the capacity of giving sharp, helpful feedback. Cannot recommend more.
