About Me

I am obsessed with making things and even more obsessed with making things better. I have been interested since I was a child. After my C++ course at Beavercreek highschool; I have been actively involved in learning new programming languages. I have designed websites for small businesses, created programs for the air force, and programs for SAS Automation.

I speciallize in observing and imporving processes. I train these skills by my hoby of programming outside of work. I learn and adapt to new standards and implement them. My interests, however, extend beyond programming. I love to design in CAD, and documentation.

When I'm not programming, I'm probably hanging out with my friends, watching hockey, playing tennis or playing Kerbal Space Program.

My Work

Air Force Institute of Technology Optics Database Search With Excel.

When I was interning at AFIT I was told to figure out an efficient way to sort all the optics the AFIT/ENP owned. Just coming out of a MATLAB course at Wright State, I decided to create a Excel search accompanied with MATLAB. This created a very fast way to search through hundreds of optics of all types, with the restrictions of what can be used on Air Force computers.

SAS Automation Catalog

I have been working on features modifying opencart which is used for the shopping cart at SAS Automation; along with product descriptions. I used mPDF to auto create datasheets for the products and have the catalog being generated this way as well.

Minecraft - WebStats

WebStats is a personal project that I like to update in my spare time. It has been in development since 2011; with periodic updates to remove bugs in code, design, and functionality. It was created to allow for anyone that plays Minecraft to view the statistics of their modified servers via the use of HTML and MySQL for a database.

CM Executive Search

This website was created to be a hub for contractors to submit their resume. I made a large design overhaul to this site adding PHP background code for hidden functions that allow the site to work. This site is no longer active, however it is ready to function.

Silver Twins Movie

Silver Twins Movie was the first time I tried using WordPress, which is the base code for a website. It is easy to keep a nice format how the client likes, allowing for anyone with permision to edit it, eliminating the need to have access to the servers FTP. This was needed since this site will be changed by more than me.
