While I was at Carleton University, I worked part time at Media-X Systems to redesign their company website. This involved developing web pages in WordPress using a custom theme in HTML5, CSS3, and PHP. The content management system (CMS) of WordPress allows for employees to update content easily without editing custom html and css files. This allowed my co-worker, Connor Cleland, to update content on the blog and help with any design changes on the site as necessary. I am continuing to work full time at Media-X and we are currently working on improving SEO and adding Google AdWords on pages to increase traffic and exposure.

Users can view scores in their sports of interest, and allow the user to view a website's updates on a particular sport. The application offers an easy, interactive experience for the user that allows navigation through a native menu to: Refresh the timeline, edit controls, view timeline and followers, go online to see scores, filter through usernames of their choice, and close the window.

A gestural drawing based application served to young audiences. I was involved in fully programming and implementing the game. We used Processing in Java and a custom LeapMotion library to implement drawing gestures and motions as input for our game. My other team members involved in this project: Jessica Fox (art), Rebecca Riesberry (art), and Alex Tarapacky (programming). Demonstration of how the Leap Motion device works with our application can be viewed below:
