He gave really valuable feedback about my portfolio as well as helpful insights into the UX hiring process. I finally feel ready to start applying for jobs! I was feeling very unsure about my portfolio, but my meeting with Tem helped me feel more confident about my work while also providing constructive feedback for some things I could still improve.
Very friendly and chill chat (and fun too!). I think he's an amazing mentor, he listens, tries to understand your situation, and beyond that makes you think of aspects you hadn't considered. He doesn't just do UX, he lives it and even his mentoring style is proof of that. On top of very useful insights for my portfolio and how to present myself for the career I want, he also gave me a lot of confidence in myself, and showed me very specifically how to find value in things I'd often take for granted.
Tem is down-to-earth, friendly, insightful and eager to share his design knowledge!

It’s very clear that he is passionate about his craft and willing to reach back and pull up others on the same path - thank you, Tem!
