👋 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!

5 out of 5 stars

I had the pleasure of working with Earl for almost a year, and I have to say it's hard to write a summary of everything I like about my experience - there are too many! But I'll try to share a few of them with you: 1) I think his industry experience & teaching experience are a rare combination that makes him an exceptional mentor. He is really good at asking the right questions to understand my challenges, and articulating his suggestions in very simple and clear language. 2) He is very knowledgeable about the field, and very organized too! If you ask him a question, he most likely has a great article or book recommendation for you. 3) I LOVE his candid feedback on my work and the way I work. Combined with this is his warm and kind personality which makes it a joy to learn from the feedback. 4) As a beginner in the field, I ask a lot of silly questions 😅 He can always spot opportunities to educate and inspire, helping me not only find answers to the questions but also understand the problem on a higher level. I highly recommend his services and look forward to being his mentee again!
