About Me

I’m a coder majoring in Game Programming with experience working in frontend development from two internships at Fidelity Investments. I love clean, readable code. In my free time I like bicycling and (big surprise here) video games.

Education

Champlain College, Burlington, VT

August 2016 - May 2020

In Progress: Bachelor of Science in Game Programming

Projects

Machine Learning

I co-designed and created an app to classify customer feedback using machine learning. This was an awesome project because I learned a bit more about machine learning, and got a crash course in full stack development including Angular, CSS, Python, and Django REST framework

Lunch Rush

Created an education game for 1st through 3rd graders targeting food allergy awareness. This project is important because it gave me a chance to build architecture for the game designers rather than create the whole game.

Bullet Squid

Created a very simple top down shooter with a five person team. This was especially exciting because it required learning Unity3D on the fly and working with another programmer.
