Hello Friends! Welcome to UX Mentor Diaries, your weekly actionable advice on how to accelerate your UX career, negotiate a promotion, become a manager, or build a thriving mentorship practice. 

Who am I?

I'm Marina Krutchinsky, a design leader, mentor, strategist, and hands-on UX designer from NYC. With over 20 years of industry experience under my belt, I've gained a wealth of knowledge to share with you.

I love helping UXers and product designers learn how to use their strengths to uplevel their careers.

Throughout my extensive career in UX, interaction, service, and product design, I've had the privilege of mentoring hundreds of UX professionals. This has given me a unique perspective on what it takes to speed up UX training, improve user research skills, ace job interviews, improve career strategies, and turn LinkedIn profiles into lead magnets.
