About Me


I am a student in my Junior year at Worcester Polytechnic Institute majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Interactive Media & Game Development. I discovered my passion for programming in Middle School while learning how to program mods for Minecraft and have been hooked ever since.

I have years of experience developing software across many different areas of computing, such as: mobile app development, computer graphics, and web development. I have also been hired as a contractor to develop websites, apps, backend services, and more.

Projects


Terra

Terra is an infinite procedural terrain mesh generator for Unity 3D that allows you to quickly create terrain both visually and programmatically. Customizing the procedural generation pipeline is simple yet powerful through the use of Terra’s generation API. Any generator created visually can be implemented programmatically allowing you to tailor generation to the specifics of your game.

Stigma Free Worcester

Stigma Free Worcester acts as a resource directory for substance use, homelessness, and mental health resources within the City of Worcester, MA. This app was made in collaboration with 3 other students for our Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) at WPI. Using the Android SDK and Firebase SDK, we programmed the app to feature treatment center listings, scheduled events, and filters for finding specific locations. I also created a CMS website for administrators to update, add, and remove listings from the app. The app was published on the Google Play Store and has been actively grossing downloads. The Worcester Technical Services Department has hired me to create the iOS version of Stigma Free Worcester.
