👋 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 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!

What mentees say



5 out of 5 stars

I call him Thorough Earl! I was feeling overwhelmed about how to learn UX on my own and how to sort through all the online courses and resources. Earl helped point in the right direction and suggested a few top-tire courses/books as well as exercises he designed himself. He's incredibly organized and offered documents full of resources he collected on his own. I feel much more focused and confident after only a few meetings with Thorough Earl.

Came back for a quick session with Earl to discuss specific challenges related to managing IA/navigation changes, and, as usual, left the session with concrete next steps as well as ideas on how to be a great designer in general. Feeling grateful, inspired and invigorated! 😊 Thank you, Earl!



5 out of 5 stars

Earl was very diligent, patient, and resourceful for people just starting out within the design field! He is well-versed and connected within the UX Design field, so if you’re looking for a place to start with a great result, he is the mentor you should consider!
