  • Drobe — Automated Outfit Curation

    Users upload their wardrobe to the application by creating an article object for each article of clothing in their closet. Then, at any time, the user can hit the "generate outfit" button and Drobe will pick an outfit for them to wear. The outfits are chosen by the user's rating of each item, the weather, and how recently each item was worn.

  • Personal Website

    My personal website is a place where I try out and showcase small web and JavaScript coding projects and discuss other projects I've done. It's developed in Vue.js with a Go back end. Includes mostly small projects and links to things I'm interested in.

  • Atlas Retrofit Public Website

    This the public-facing site for Atlas Retrofit. The site is designed to be simple and represent a trust-worthy, knowledgable retrofit company that provides value to its customers. The site is written in plain HTML (with Pug), CSS (with LESS), and JavaScript.
    This site is still under construction.

  • Titanic Dataset Exploration

    Just a simple project exploring the dataset of passengers on the Titanic from Kaggle. I explored which features make an individual most likely vs least likely to survive the maiden voyage of the Titanic. I look into, primarily, differences across sex, age, and wealth (using ticket price as a proxy).

  • Kandinsky Bot

    This is a programmatically created digital artwork. This project uses Python to create random works of art in the style of Wassily Kandinsky. It includes utilities for creating many images at a time, automatically deleting undesired results.

  • Snake AI

    An artificially intelligent player for the classic snake game. I built the classic snake game with a small difference: it has floating point positions and directions instead of integer/cardinal-only, and I evolved (using a genetic algorithm) a neural network to play the game.

  • Boids

    My rendition of Boids (by Craig Reynolds, 1986).
    The digital creatures (boids) flock together by applying the following rules:
    1. Move toward the center of mass of nearby boids.
    2. Turn to match the average direction of nearby boids.
    3. Try to avoid boids that are very close.

  • Holland — A Genetic Algorithm Library for Python

    Holland (named for John H. Holland a pioneer in genetic algorithms research) is a library for Python that allows a user to use the genetic algorithm on nearly any problem. The main requirements from the user are a description of the genome (structure and types) and a fitness function (a method of evaluating the strength of each genome). The library is available for Python via Pip with "pip install holland."

  • CSS Flags

    A CSS project in which I re-create the flags of many of the world's nations using CSS and only a single div element per flag. I started the project because I was interested in flag design and wanted to explore some advanced CSS features.
