I can help you quickly identify your special talents or predispositions within the broad UX field that will set you apart from the competition. I can show you how to always play to your strengths. I can guide your study for Google UX design certificate. I can help you brainstorm and solve any UX issue you are facing. I also mentor UX Academy students at DesignLab and would be happy to answer any questions about UX bootcamps in general.
Here are just a few things we can work on —

- Would you like to know the pros and cons of being a UX designer at an agency vs. in-house vs. at a startup?
- Are you wondering what are the "must-know" UX tools & methods and which ones are just "nice to have"?
- Do you need help preparing for a UX job interview?
- Or, for a design challenge?
- Would you benefit from having your UX portfolio looked at?
