I am a senior pursuing a Creative Technologies degree with an Entrepreneurship & Innovation minor.

HackWasher


The HackWasher was designed during the summer for HackBerry Lab in preparation for students to return in August during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a handwashing station build on the handrail outside the lab.

E-broidery


For this lab, we started by creating designs to mimic a linear potentiometer, a rotary potentiometer, and a joystick as 2D images. Then we turned these images into embroidery files and stitched them using conductive thread to create circuit swatches.

Embedded Circuit Pillow


We started this lab by creating our own PCB's that are designed to be sewn into fabric. My project using these is a pillow with 7 capacitive touch boards and a piezo buzzer that plays a different tone based on which berry you are touching.

Thermochromics and Heat-Resistive Fabrics


We created thermochromic paint that can be applied to various materials and when current is passed through it, the paint changes color. Through a matrix of these panels & a program to change the polarity on peltier coolers to see the effect.

Kimono


For my final project, I made a kimono using a pattern online, machine embroidering flowers & leaves, and sewing in wearable PCBs to create a color-changing NeoPixel kimono.

Don't Stand So Close To Me


This hand-held device uses an Ultra-sonic range finder, LCD screen, 2 Neopixels, and 2 buttons, to measure 6ft. If you are within 3 inches either direction of 6ft the green NeoPixel will turn on, if not it will turn red. It also shows the measurement.

Piano Trainer


For my CSC 235 project, I wanted to combine the things I learned in the CRT 498 class with conductive thread into a controller for a game. The piano trainer allows you to learn to play a song in processing on a capacitive touch piano connected to Arduino.

NeoPixel Ferris Wheel


This interactive art piece was designed for a physical computing class. The Ferris Wheel was designed in Cricut, then cut out of basswood on a Cricut Maker. Using Arduino with NeoPixels, a photoresistor, and a DC motor to spin it and light it up.

Harmony's Crafty Creations Trailer Decals


In the summer of 2013, I created my own business named Harmony’s Crafty Creations. After several successful years, I got this trailer to sell out of but I wanted to showcase my skills by making the decals myself.

Harmony's Crafty Creations T-Shirt Display


This t-shirt display was created to provide a creative solution to store and display shirts for sale at vendor events. Routing the holes in the MDF both provided a fun design as well as cut weight from the overall display.

Embroidery


Machine Embroidery is a skill I had always wanted to learn, from simple designs to appliques. To make an the embroidered design you start with an image and import it to embroider software to convert it to a stitch file.

HackBerry Helper


This project focused on allowing teachers to track student progress throughout an activity. Each student would receive their own handheld device with two buttons. One that signified that they were good and ready to move on the other saying they need help.

Sierpinski’s Carpet Cube


For my last project, I created a cube out of Sierpinski’s Carpet tiles of fabric. This is used to show fractals, dimensions, a platonic solid, surface area as well as explain what someone at each stage of the Van Hiele Theory would understand about it.

Green Team


For this project, we were looking at the inefficiency of the sidewalk placement in the Cage Lawn. To measure this we created two sensor modules that use microwave sensors to track someone. Then used data to create visualizations to portray this issue.

HCC Trailer Model


For my Fusion 360 final, I wanted to model my business trailer. I wanted it to look like a scaled version that I can use to create shelves and other things on the inside to test out the layout before I build them in the actual trailer.

Shirt Staffed


During a 4 hour Hackathon, I cut out and pressed 14 of these shirts. I made them for all of the Lab assistance at the time plus the instructors. I designed the shirt before the Hackathon using Cricut Design Space.
