Wahoo Wager/GRAND INDIANS
Our team made a gambling app to see which Cleveland Indians fan is the best! We also made a visual novel that we pivoted away from at the last moment. There was asset reuse between the two so they are kind of the same!?
This application helps teach Freshmen students basics of college life, including step by step guides on doing laundry and making food safely.

This Nintendo DS application allows users to prove to others that they have not been playing video games for a set amount of time.
Dorm Improvement Project
DSCI 13210 Design Process and Principles – 2014
For this class project I prototypes a trashcan that could communicate with a central computer to let it know when it was full so that Janitors could be more efficiently dispatched.
We used a Lillypad microcontroller to create a smart wristband that could be used to teach children where good places to study were located.

3D Printer Proposal
Kent Interhall Council – 2012-2013
I spearheaded a proposal to purchase a 3D printer for student use through Kent Interhall Council with the generous assistance of Dr. Linden Adkins. At the time there was no accessible 3D printer at Kent State University for general student use, using a 3D printer cost a lot of money and required permission from a professor.
This proposal included arguing the merits of having a 3D printer on campus and researching ways of making the costs of such a program bearable by the Hall Council. Ultimately Kent Interhall Council approved this use of funding which would have been the first formally general student available 3D printer at Kent State University.
Unfortunately our Residential Technology Manager decided that 3D Printers were unsuitable for the general student body and shot down our effort, suggesting the traditional model of limiting access to a group of students instead. Bureaucracy had defeated our democratic decision.
Thankfully next semester Kent State’s Undergraduate Student Government started to spearhead another effort (Mostly unrelated to my own) to acquire a 3D printer, and by working with University Libraries and their Student Multimedia Studio, managed to procure two 3D Printers. (I might add that their plan was much better then my own, and 3D printing has since taken off at Kent State University. )
