Mervin is an awesome mentor to talk to. He gave me a lot of useful advices about my resume and portfolio during my job hunting and told me about how to success on interviews. He is very supportive and kind. During our last meeting, he provided many suggestions on my project that I didn't think about before and was really inspiring! He also have a cute dog:) Highly recommend Mervin if you want to find a great mentor who's is a master in UX.
Mervin tells you like it is. He looks at the bigger picture, and it shows in his advice. When discussing design, Mervin was able to explain what is fundamental. He sent me resources that he personally vetted. Sometimes the design community has different opinions, but by talking to him I was able to understand where those different opinions come from, and ultimately I feel that I got a better, more nuanced understanding.
