As a way of giving back to the design community, I’ve made myself available for mentoring sessions via ADPList. I transitioned from a tech role to the product design field, and I wish a resource like this was available when I was trying to make that career shift. I’m available (free of charge) to designers for portfolio reviews, mock interviews, and general mentorship.
