What Our Students Say

Elizabeth has a deep understanding of all aspects of design. She helped me identify specific areas to focus on based on my long term career goals.

Testimonial - Arpit
Program Manager

I can't begin to explain how helpful getting insight from someone in the field is. It helps me focus on what's important, and really streamline the process of going from "I don't know what I'm doing" to "I still don't know what I'm doing, but at least I have a plan on how to get better". It really is invaluable and I feel like working with Eric has really sped up the process of getting better!

Beyond having a strong command of a breadth of subject matter, Eric also possesses a strong design eye and was quick to notice errors, down to the pixel. In addition to all of this, he's easy to work with and knows when to lead and when to take a step back to allow others to contribute.
