Hello, I'm John Peele. I believe in the power of empathy and good design to solve human problems. I love making useful and beautiful things that people enjoy and bring delight.

I am a native North Carolinian and currently a UX Design Lead at Galvanize.

More specifically, I guess you could call me a full-stack designer specializing in user experience design, user interface design, and front-end development of digital products (mouthful). For most of my career, I have been a member of super successful multi-disciplinarian teams, where I have lead user research interviews, conducted A/B tests, given design workshops, written countless proposals, and designed elegant solutions for a myriad of challenges. You can now find me solving the not-so-sexy problems of Governance, Risk, and Compliance professionals with a world-class team at Galvanize.

Outside the world of design, I am a competitive soccer player, Crossfitter, and rabid Manchester United fan. I have called North Carolina home for my entire life and love exploring all its nooks-n-crannies with my wife Britten and children Brisyn and Saylor Grace.

Stay tuned for more...
