Hands down, a lot of what I know is owed to generous mentors and peer-support. These human conversations helped to expand my perspectives and arm me with new considerations when I needed it the most. In an effort to give back to my community, I teach public workshops, mentor at accelerators, and run a peer-support community called Ūndersurface.
One of my workshop series is Quickstart Guide to Visual Design — a practically oriented bootcamp for students & professionals to quickly, but dramatically raise their visual design chops. Another is Value Proposition workshop — a full-day, hands-on program aimed to help projects explore & hone in on their users and the value they create in the world.
Learning best happens when we have fun. When the energy in the room is good. When people are interested in the task. When it's a bit of a play!
All my events are designed to be very practical and collaborative; full of exercises, stories and silly things, rather than long theoretical talks.
