Oh hey, didn't see you there.

I'm a Senior pursuing a Creative Technologies degree with a Mathematics minor.
I'm currently enrolled in CRT 420, CRT 450, & MAT 324.

I'm seeking opportunities in PCB Design, Product Design, & 3D Modeling.

Mighty Mouse


This project was an exercise in Ergonomic Design. For this project we had to create a computer mouse that was suited to a specific task. In my case, I chose to focus in on what features a Music Producer would need in their computer mouse.

MIDI Mixer


This project is an Arduino Based MIDI Controller. We created and then manufactured PCBs. Then we soldered 8 Elastomer Buttons, 8 NeoPixels, 3 Potentiometers, and 1 Slide Potentiometer as physical controls that would interfact with the DAW AudioTool.

Pop Art PCB


I chose to create a PCB with a Back To The Future theme. The animations were then created in Arduino. The first was an animated version ofthe word mark. The second was an animated version of the movie poster. The third was the time machine's flashes.

GamePad


For my game, I created a Space Invaders style game entitled "Producer Panic." The player sprite is a MIDI keyboard and the enemies are Mixtapes and SoundCloud logos. In addition I also designed a case in Fusion360 custom fit to my PCB's specifications.

Desktop Device


For this project I made an IOT device. This device grabs the time in Shenzhen, China; displays weather info in Tampa, FL; shows the current stock price of Coca-Cola; and displays the current PowerBall Jackpot. This infomation updates every minute.

Don't Stand So Close To Me


For our final project in Robotics, we created a game that promotes social distancing. Our game teaches the user how to accurately estimate 6 feet. My contribution to the project was creating a PCB that made the game simple, compact, and mass producible.

Studio Monitors


For my final project, I decided to make stands for my studio monitors (Flat EQ Curve Speakers) so that I could use them with my triple computer monitor setup. I designed the stands in Fusion360, then I built the stands out of MDF and pine 2x4s.

RGBeat Covid


RGBeat Covid is a two-layer cloth facemask with 40 addressable RGB LEDs sewn in between the top and bottom cloth layers. The lights are powered by a 9 volt battery and an Arduino Nano. The battery and Arduino are in a case worn on the back of the shirt.

BottleBoard


BottleBoard is a machine designed to take a mixture of HDPE and bamboo shavings and extrude a composite 1x4. The inspiration for this project came from Hawaii having no way to recycle their plastics and being reliant on shipping their recyclables abroad.
