Hello, my name is John Clarkson. I've been a UX leader, manager and designer for 25 years. I was the Director of UX for AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), helping millions of people chat and connect. After AOL I spent four years in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, establishing a UX mindset at Yes, the world's first nationwide 4G network. Recently, I was at Identity Guard, creating an identity protection service driven by the power of AI (IBM Watson).

I enjoy finding solutions to dense, chewy problems. I love helping people. Reach out and say hello. If I can be of help in any way, I will. At the end of the day, we're all in this together.

I was a film/photography major with a minor in illustration at the Pratt Institute of Art.
