To tell us about your ADPList mentorship experience
November 2, 2020

Michael is constructive and helpful with his feedback and compliments and he takes the time to listen to concerns and ideas, reflect on them, and respond with consideration. I went from knowing nothing about design to improving immensely, but also, Michael really encouraged my love of research which fostered my exploration of UX Research in more depth.

Michael is an amazing mentor! I appreciated the time he took to help me. He is also super friendly and was great with any questions I had. He has great insights and feedback which really helped me to grow as a UX designer. With his background, he is super knowledgeable and has all the guidance I could ever ask for. If you are looking for a friendly and experienced mentor, I recommend him!

Always giving real life examples to answer my questions. Michael has helped me a lot since I first started the UX/UI Design career, he is the one who encouraged me to have a UX Engineer path and that is what I am doing right now.

Michael is a mentor who is always there to help and lift his mentees whenever they need him. I reached out to Michael on LinkedIn simply to connect and say 'hi' and he kindly offered to passively chat about questions I might have. He is an excellent listener and gives insightful and practical advice. I would highly recommend learning from Michael!

Without even knowing Michael being a mentor, as a new UX Designer entering the field, I wanted some advice on my portfolio and general advice with how to improve my skills. What he did was analyze my portfolio and my resume and gave me the best advice I have ever gotten since entering this field. I was not surprised to find out shortly after that he is in fact a mentor. Michael is such a delight to talk to and you instantly can tell he cares and wants you to be successful in UX. He is passionate about this field and it definitely shows. I would definitely recommend Michael with anything UX, you will not be disappointed! I do plan to utilize Michael's services and sound advice moving forward. Thank you Michael.

I reached out to Michael on email. Even though he was busy and was not taking any more meetings, he was kind enough and happy to answer my questions via email. He shared his experience as a UX Designer which was very insightful. He also provided me a quick feedback on my portfolio. I would definitely recommend him to other mentees.

Michael is simply amazing! I connected with Mike on Linkedin with a very long message (essay). He took the time to read through my story, got on a call with me, and shared his story as well. Hearing his story helped me understand how uneasy sometimes following your passion can be, but also how rewarding persistence, hard work and humility are. He has so much experience, that he understands every bit of concern or problem I am currently facing, it's like talking to my future self. There is so much to learn from Mike and I am just getting started!
