I'm John Gonzalez, a UX Designer that helps bridge the gap between the users and the world of information. I like to think UX design as a way to help people connect, stay connected, and connect with the information around them. Good UX can help users digest information that allows them to make important decisions. I want to facilitate that.
I've been a career nomad since I went to university. I explored pre-medicine in university, business management after graduation and dabbled in digital marketing. Having lost my career sense of direction, Covid-19 hit and made me introspective. What did I enjoy doing? What do I see myself doing for the rest of my life? That's when the metaphorical UX design door opened. I fell in love instantly. UX design was exactly where I could express myself in creatively, help people, and make decisions that can affect how people interact with the world around them.

Throughout university, I loved dancing. Having been part of the Filipino Association at my university, an Asian fraternity Pi Alpha Phi and later the all male Korean dance cover group, I performed many times on stage in front of hundreds and even thousands of people. I even choreographed for each group. I enjoy anything that allows me to express myself through music, whether it be through dancing to or playing music.
