Featured Projects

I completed these projects on my own. Imagine what we could make together!

A CRUD web app that facilitates standardized online critiques for artists and designers. The user experience is crafted to encourage objective feedback by structuring the critique process around the fundamentals of art and design.

The project features asynchronous javascript, cloud-hosted databases, image analysis via RESTful API, and server-side coding in the Node.js environment.

Toolkit: Vue, Cloud Vision API, Firebase, Cloud Functions, Cloud Firestore (NoSQL), Cloud Storage

Bladers Field Guide

A responsive web app built with React. It displays information for inline skating tricks, including photos, descriptions, and more. It features a clean interface that lets users look through different tricks on any device.

I developed this project because I love to skate and want to share it! The sport needs more young people with an understanding of the trick vocabulary. This app provides a quick way to learn about different tricks.

Toolkit: React, HTML5/CSS3

Ready or Not

A project that explores the commonality of our fears. Through color, motion, and typography, the site creates a calming atmosphere. This atmosphere encourages more honest interaction.

I created this site to learn more about MySQL databases and to experiment with color and motion.

Toolkit: JavaScript, HTML5/CSS3, MySQL
