Chris is a fantastic instructor, and I am incredibly fortunate to learn from someone passionate and knowledgeable in UX/UI design. He is always enthusiastic and willing to go the extra mile to make sure all his students excel in class. I was impressed with Chris' curriculum as it was exceptionally well thought out and organized throughout the entire course. I believe that I became a better designer with the disciplines he taught in class. I am confident to say that he has prepared me for the real world and taught me how to be an independent thinker. I recommend anyone interested in becoming a strong UX/UI Designer to take his course.
Chris is an amazing mentor who puts his time and effort to communicate everything within his knowledge to his students. Combining his great experience and education, Chris can provide a realistic perspective and approach of what UX/UI looks like in real life. Would love to work with him again!
