A powerhouse of a person! I transitioned my career into UX under the supervision of Austin, and could not have been blessed with a better instructor/guide/coach/teacher/mentor (everything really!) — quite naturally, I came into the course with my head full of worries, fears and anxiety, but quickly found myself in a safe, creative space that Austin had created, where we were free to explore, experiment, make mistakes and learn from them (quickly).
There are plenty of things about Austin that inspire me, but above all, it was his genuine love for purposeful, thoughtful and delightful design that won me over. Forever pushing me to take my thought process, concept project and client relationship one step further, Austin never fails to challenge me to do bigger and better. I can confidently say that I wouldn’t be the designer I am today without Austin.
