Global design education & mentorship

2014 - present

I've enjoyed leading and teaching through design workshops and courses at home and abroad in New York, Moscow, Mexico City, and Barcelona. I focus on helping students develop a user-centered design approach, grounded in foundational research methods and proper problem-framing. Most recently, I taught Holistic Product Design at Harbour Space University, covering UX design, user research methods, and prototyping with undergraduate and graduate students. 

I also mentor a number of designers, students, and individuals considering a career shift to design/tech in my role at Google and in teaching.
