Zenput

In 2013, I joined Zenput, a small start-up in San Francisco, as a junior software engineer. Zenput provides real-time mobile data collection and analytics for businesses through iOS and Android apps. Companies can use Zenput to replace slow, outdated processes built on paper forms and surveys with fast, integrated mobile apps that offer superior analytics reported directly to managers.

Long Live Champlain Video

It's hard to believe how quickly my four years of college have past, yet I could not have asked for a better four. For several weeks, I dug through hours of gigabytes of video that I had recorded from my freshman through senior years in order to create one video that embodies my college experience. For those who attended Champlain with me, I hope watching this makes you smile as much as making it made me. For everyone else, I'd like to introduce you to my friends. Long live!

Champlain College Housing Registrar WebApp

As a Champlain College capstone project, this housing registration web application is a working proof-of-concept for what would allow students to research on-campus living opportunities with details regarding location, room sizes, roommate possibilities, and more. It would allow residential administrators to easily upload descriptions, images, and floor plans for each hall.

Champlain College Shuttle Tracker for AndroidTM

The Champlain College Shuttle Tracker displays locations of shuttles and buses at Champlain College that are responsible for transportation between campus, Spinner Place, Quarry Hill, and the Gilbane parking lot. It is an unofficial, mobile, and on-the-go alternative to the desktop web tracker, available at shuttle.champlain.edu. I chose to pursue this project voluntarily because I personally desired a better way to access shuttle information on the go and it was a good way to introduce myself to Android development.

Since graduating from Champlain, I have open-sourced the app and welcome others in the Champlain community to build upon my work. Click here to view the project on GitHub.

Green Mountain Mules (Website)

As a team for a web e-commerce class, two other developers and I created a website and online trading store for mule-related equipment and services. In addition to a blog and standard informational pages, the site allows members to log in and post products and services for sale or trade. The site was built on WordPress, and my team designed and implemented many additional features through PHP, MySQL, Javascript, etc.

Two-Player Chess (Java Application)

One of my first Java programs, this game provides a virtual chessboard for two players to use in a game of chess (much like the built-in chess game on Windows). There are admittedly a few remaining bugs that were never polished out, but it is available for download. Extract the .zip file and execute chess.jar.
