Ive seen Leon in Universities teaching?

To me, a great designer goes beyond delivering successful products as a design lead in big tech and my agency. There is an unmatched reward in fostering empathy and human connection in the UX realm, through enriching the UX community with education.

Guest Lecturing & hosting workshops

I discover my purpose as a UX educator by remaining down to earth to students as a life long mentor, while publishing Medium articles, leading workshops, and guest lecturing at renowned HCI universities such as (UW, RISD, CMU to name a few)

Non-profits & Diversity

I partner with global nonprofits to advance tech inclusivity and empower minorities and women in tech via UX education. This involves initiatives like scholarships, public events, and conferences such as IDSA, TedX, and many other.
