About Me

I’m Violet, and yes, I do love the colour purple (perhaps a little too much).

My purpose in life is pretty cliché – I love to bring joy to someone’s day, make the world a better place. Or at least make it less frustrating, more hopeful. I see this realized regularly in my work as a UX designer, event producer and DJ; roles where harmony, delight and flow can be used to measure success.

I am driven by my curious, playful and analytical nature.  I am passionate about discovery and use a healthy mix of communication, user research and visual thinking skills to help teams create people-friendly interactive experiences. My process is informed by a BA in Economics/Marketing, a post-grad certificate in Interactive Digital Media and professional experience as a graphic designer.

I am happiest when I have harvested insights which have allowed people and organizations to flourish. I am especially inspired by projects which propel innovative startups, social good, scrappy underdogs and win-win scenarios.
