About Me

I am a programmer/developer. I have worked on both desktop applications and websites. Most of my recent work has been in C# but I also have experiance in Java, PHP, and C/C++. I enjoy creative problem solving and developing object schemas.

I also volunteer coach for youth and collegiate rowing clubs in my city. Rowing in college helped shape who I am today and gave me the strength to improve myself. I enjoy guiding others down the same path.

Noteable Projects


This was a project for the CIS 526 Web Interface Design at Kansas State University. It is a chatroom application based on class schedules at KSU. It is built on NodeJS and utilizes Socket.IO for the majority of its functionality. At this time, it is not deployed for public access but it's code can be found on Github.

DM's Whiteboard

This is a personal project that is primarly written in NodeJS with Express and BootStrap. DM's Whiteboard is a simple web application to aid tabletop game masters in managing combat. It includes initiative order lists for both players and enemies, and stat tracking for each of the enemies. It was intended to replace the small whiteboard that the DM in my game used. It's repo can be found here and a live version can be found here. At this time, developement on this project has been put on hold.

EGADS: Grain Analysis and Discrimination System

EGADS was my ongoing project at the USDA and was my presented project for CIS 598. It is a machine that analyses and sorts grain by using computer vision. It utilizes the OpenCV library via the EMGU wrapper. The prototype hardware is at the USDA Center for Grain and Animal Health Research and the repo can be found here.


This is another USDA project. The original project was started by someone else a number of years before I started at the USDA. Volksorter is a grain sorter that uses color and infrared LEDs to profile and discriminate each seed that passes through. I was tasked with rebuilding the interface originally written in a proprietary C++ library into C#. The new interface added a few features and proved more reliable when connecting and receiving data from the machine. It's repo is here.

VDES: Vacuum Dough Expansion System

Vac Dough was my first project with the Stored Product Insect and Engineering Research Unit (SPIERU) in the USDA. The researchers had a small vacuum chamber in which they would place samples of dough. My job was to build a program to connect with a vacuum sensor, temperature sensor, camera, and vacuum pump control relay. The program then took all of the data from the devices and compiled it into an Excel sheet for the researchers to use. I had to take into account the multiple devices operating asynchronizely as well as the needs of the researchers.
