Kieran was a fantastic mentor throughout my time at Designlab. He provided helpful, actionable feedback on my work, and challenged me to think more deeply about the design process. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, which he was always eager to share during our sessions. Not only that, he is very empathetic and encouraging. Since landing my first full-time design role, I frequently refer back to our discussions and resources he shared. I’m so grateful for Kieran’s mentorship in the early stages of my design career!

As part of my work for Designlab, I've made contributions to updating the curriculum and being a moderator in their Slack community for both their UX Academy and Foundations courses. This video is an example of what I create on a daily basis for students.

Streaming and presenting has allowed me to reach a much bigger audience via Designlab. I love doing deep dives with students and helping them with subject matter I often take for granted.
