I Create Awesome Stuff
I have a strong background in robotics, starting with my experience on a FIRST Robotics team in high school, where I helped design, build, and program robots for competition. This foundation in robotics led me to pursue a degree in software engineering, which I received from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI.
Throughout my academic career, I have demonstrated my ability to excel in both the mechanical and software aspects of robotics projects. For example, I was part of a small team that designed and built a functional robotic arm to cut a ribbon revealing the brand new technology building.
In my free time, I enjoy 3D printing and developing software I have a strong interest in using these technologies to create functional prototypes and custom solutions. I tend to prototype using off the shelf electronics such as an ESP32 for its many features and low cost.
I am eager to continue developing my skills and expertise and am motivated to pursue a career in these areas where I can make a meaningful impact.
As a software engineer and robotics enthusiast, I have had the opportunity to work on a number of exciting projects in these fields. These experiences have helped shape my career goals and allowed me to use my skills to make a positive impact through technology. From developing software to building and programming robots, I have enjoyed the process of bringing these projects to life and am grateful for the chance to pursue my passions.
After learning about the Web Bluetooth standard a friend and I decided to make Bleep an arduino library that lets you set parameters over bluetooth. I wrote the webapp that interacted with the bluetooth devices using the new standard.

After doing repetitive tasks i figured there could be a more effecient way for measuring parts, I developed this software to communicate with a digital height gauge which gave me control of its core functions. I deployed this to a small raspberry pi with a touchscreen for quick input.
I was trained on this ATOS Scanner which has a resolution of 10 microns. We used this to make reference models for texturing products using our 5-Axis lasers.
I was really interested at trying Ros in college so I put a plan together, proposed it to a board of student funding and ended up getting around $1K for the project. After many weeks and headaches taught myself quite a bit and I got a drunk RC car out of it. The school still has the car and i’ve been told some students have taken the project further.
After owning a Monoprice Delta Mini for some time, I really wanted to expand my work envelope for larger projects. I ended up going with Ratrigs Vcore 400 design giving me a total build volume of 400mm cubed.
As part of my game room design i wanted a futuristic look and decided to recess my PC into the wall and route all the wiring via the walls as well.
I printed this model from PlanePrint.com using LW-PLA pre-foamed filament for its lightweight properties it works well for 3D printed planes. The parts are printed in many pieces attached with hobby CA glue.
We were tasked by the Dean to create and build a robot to cut the ribbon for Johnson & Wales brand new technology building which was quite an honor to take part in. I worked on most aspects of the project because of my prior experience with FIRST Robotics.
I built this to experiment with cheap LoRa eps32 modules. It uses and off the shelf raspberry pi and a RAK2245 Pi Hat.
I enjoyed messing around with these WS2812 addressable leds and though why not put them on my motorcycle and make them functional at the same time. I added a microcontroller to sense when the turn signal was active and play an animation on the strip of leds.
From building custom battery banks to repairing my ebike battery. This DIY Spot welder worked really well for the job.
I have been able to work with many frameworks and languages
My vast background has allowed me to work on projects from all aspects such as electronics concept to a fully functional prototype with software, to designing and either 3D printing or manufacturing with multi axis mills. Over the years I have explored different languages tools and created some of my own to help automate industrial machines and my personal equipment.
