Some nice people have said some nice things about working with me.
"If you get the chance to work with David, grab it! I've worked with him for 8 years at Skyscanner. First when he was a freelancer and Skyscanner was a small startup, and later when he joined the company (to the delight of all), and onwards as it grew to the worldwide success it is today.
A lot of that success is down to the company's traveller-first philosophy, and David undoubtedly had a lot to do with that. He has a tireless focus on the user experience and how to champion its importance throughout the business. His unique insights into user behaviour are delivered with clear, pragmatic and actionable recommendations that were the basis of countless successful projects at Skyscanner. He's also a fun guy to have on your team!
In short, the best I've worked with."
Jackie Hunter, formerly Senior UX Designer at Skyscanner
"David is a fantastic user researcher with a relentless focus on removing friction and creating a smooth user experience. After I moved to a new job, David was my first point of contact to help me guide my thinking on customer research, hiring a designer and creating a better process for diagnosing the customers needs. I highly recommend David as a person to work with, because he always brings invaluable insights and digests them in a format that can be immediately actioned."
Stefan Sabev, now Product Lead at TravelNest
"While at Skyscanner, I had the privilege of having David as a colleague. When you meet him, you'll realize very quickly he's passionate about providing great experiences for customers that interact with your site -- without the fluff. On many occasions, I was fortunate enough to pop down and ask him a question or have coffee discussing issues. When I left Skyscanner and ventured into the world of startups and scaleups, David was one of the first people I called to get advice on user experience."
Matt Smith, now Senior Product Manager at Smartsheet
"With his focus on the user and practical tips for solving their pain points David has been a huge help in numerous projects. Regardless of whether we’re at the beginning of a greenfield project or deep in to an established product David is able to get straight to the point and discover the biggest opportunities. He is able to do this due to his skill and experience in watching and talking to users, but also by balancing the qual with quantitative data from a number of analytics platforms."
