In preschool, I would spend my time doodling cats, rainbows, and hearts in the margins or blank spaces of my homework – I kinda still do that.
Today, I’m still an artist, but in a different way. I’m a collaborative designer that specializes in product design with a passion for accessibility and human center design.
I keep busy in my spare time moonlighting as an instructor at the local community college in the web design program. I’ve felt immense pride and honor passing on knowledge to the next generation of product designers.
I also manage my own Instagram artist account and hope to gain a curated following to open an Etsy shop someday. If you like cats, florals, and sassy humor, give my pseudonym a follow @ Cleo.Good.Day on Instagram.
Other hobbies and interests include macrame yarn art, home renovations, maximalist interior design, craft nights with friends, murder mystery parties, kickboxing, and cat memes of course.
