Senior UX Designer

Hey, I'm John! 👋

For over 10 years, I have worked as a UX/Product designer, solving user and business problems specifically for consumer-facing digital products.


Currently a senior UX designer at Amazon, leading design for a new product initiative, I collaborate with some of the best designers and engineers in the world to design and build incredible products.


Before Amazon, I worked at Booking.com in Amsterdam on the connected trip experience project; at Etisalat [Nigeria], I led the design and development of a self-service product; at Konga.com I worked with a team of designers and marketing experts to design and launch great marketing campaigns, and at eTranzact, where I started my career, I worked on similar design projects.


I'm a certified User Experience Specialist with AKENDI UK, Certified Design Sprint Facilitator and Workshopper with AJ&Smart.


When I'm not designing or thinking about products, I'm discovering new cycling pathways or sharing memes with friends via Instagram DMs😊.
