About David

David Hamill is a nosey bastard (his words). He loves nothing more than watching people and finding out why they do things the way they do. Imagine his delight back in 2003 when he discovered you could do it as a proper job. After leaving the bank he was working for at the time of this discovery he spent 6 years working in UX consultancy. In 2013 he joined Skyscanner where he is responsible for helping the business understand the needs and behaviour of its users. He used to write a blog at www.goodusability.co.uk until he had a baby and now wonders what happened to all the spare time he used to have. He still however finds time to get out on his bike whenever he can.
