About Me

I’m Violet, an Experience Designer, Cultural Curator and DJ based in Toronto, Canada.

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 love facilitating win-win scenarios. No win is too small for me.

I am driven by my curious, playful and analytical nature. As a design consultant, I use a healthy mix of communication, research and software skills to create meaningful and people-friendly interactive experiences. My design process is informed by a passion for research, 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 found a solution which helps a person or organization flourish. I am especially inspired by projects which propel innovative startups, social good, scrappy underdogs and win-win scenarios.

Please get in touch if you’d like to collaborate!
