Hello 👋
I’m an independent designer with over a decade of experience in the digital space. I've worked with incredible teams at design agencies such as Native, Designit and Manyone; as well as in-house in the fintech space. Prior to MentorCruise I've mentored junior designers at work, as well as design students at the University of Greenwich in the UK.

Currently based in Lisbon, after working in Amsterdam, New York and London over the past 10+ years. Today, I mostly work with early-stage startups, developing B2C products across industries.

I can help you:
• Achieve your goals or overcome current challenges, with practical tips and exercises based on 14 years of industry knowledge,
• Create a professional and effective portfolio or improve your existing one, to showcase your best work,
• Prepare for job interviews - as a design interviewer I can help you practice, and give you tips on how to best represent yourself.

Whether you’re a student or a new professional, we can work together to come up with a plan that is tailored to your goals. I know all the ups and downs of a design career and have learned a thing or two about how to overcome those.

I want to help design fellows like you become the best at what you do, and stand out in a competitive industry.

I've been mentored by Teresa for a few months, and I must say it's been an incredibly positive and impactful experience. Our interactions have been comfortable, and she provides honest feedback, creating a safe space. Her extensive experience doesn't make her self-centered; instead, she's genuinely invested in my growth and well-being. Her selflessness and remarkable emotional intelligence stand out as some of her best qualities

I'm incredibly grateful for Teresa's mentorship. Initially, my goal was focused on career advancement and finding a new job. However, my experience with Teresa over the past 3 months has been so much more. She embodies the key qualities of an exceptional mentor: expertise in the field, clear communication, empathy, and a commitment to continuous learning. Teresa shapes my growth as a product designer through meaningful conversations, constructive feedback, and by sharing her personal experiences in an honest and relatable way. Whether I'm seeking design feedback or navigating daily work challenges/politics, Teresa meets me where I am. With kindness, curiosity, and patience, she guides me in thoughtful problem-solving, offering valuable insights. Teresa's genuine passion for sharing knowledge and supporting fellow designers' growth is evident and inspiring. I'm so fortunate to have her guidance on my design journey!
