Hello. My name is Melissa McLean and I am currently working on my thesis project for an MFA in Web Design New Media at the Academy of Art University.
Next semester is approaching and I am looking for an interaction design professional who is passionate about their career and is interested in sharing their knowledge and fostering a young professional in the development of their thesis project.
Specifically, my thesis project is an application for the iPad that allows a user to compose music with very little knowledge of music theory or the ability to read or write music.
Startup Weekend Toronto is coming soon - Sep 24-26! We need Toronto's local UI/UX professionals to come out and join the teams building products and startups over a weekend (and hopefully continuing from there).
Please register soon as tickets are selling out quickly.
IxDA Toronto is planning another Speed Mentoring event for September 20th, after a very successful night last year. If you're interested in taking part, please contact @jeffkraemer on Twitter or email jeff.kraemer at Gmail.
I've tried going through the system here to get a mentor but have found it to be unsuccessful, so I figured I'd try my luck with you all on the discussion board.
I read the board every once and a while and it seems as though there are great people here who could effectively serve as mentors so I would be so appreciative of your help and guidance - even if that meant an email once and a while.
