I’m John, a User Researcher (not a cowboy) currently at PlayStation. Long story short, I came to UX through doing an MA in Sociology from Goldsmiths, University of London. After graduating, I spent a few years working in the education sector before deciding to drop my tools and sign up for a hands-on course in UX Design from General Assembly. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Since then, I’ve been involved with the design and research of web applications at Alzheimer’s Society, helping thousands of people living with dementia; I’ve spoken to hundreds of sports fans and helped build fan experiences for the likes of FC Barcelona and the Cricket World Cup during my time at Pulselive; and right now I’m working on some of the biggest video games in the world at PlayStation UK as a User Researcher.
If you met me in real life, it probably won’t take long to find out that I’m a huge music nerd. I’ve been playing and writing for all sorts of instruments all my life. I’m also big into tech and I do the odd bit of visual design and photography outside of my day job.
So, that’s a bit about me. Feel free to email me or find me on socials if you want to chat.
