John Lea

Ubuntu Desktop User Experience Lead

London, United Kingdom

I started playing with computers in my formative years and never stopped! After more than a decade of getting paid to indulge my computer addiction, I now design user experience interaction architecture for the Ubuntu desktop. My passion is designing and defining innovative and integrated UX architectures from initial concepts and business strategy ideas through to functional specification and implementation. I believe in an iterative, agile approach to design, and that a coherent interaction architecture is the foundation upon which any great product is built. In the brief moments I can pry myself away from my monitor I am usually found drinking, partying, diving, playing squash or driving a 7.5t truck (though not always simultaneously).
