Lndry: If it's shakin', it's taken
  January - February 2018

Ldnry (pronounced “laundry”) was the first place winner of the Brick Hack 4 “Internet of Things” hackathon category. Read the winning devpost.

A real-time, scalable, non-crowdsourced washer and dryer availability statuses for laundromats at the Rochester Institute of Technology and beyond.

Lndry uses motion detection packaged in an adorable 3D-printed mini-washer machine to deliver real-time availability statuses on iOS and Android for individual washer and dryer machines.

I developed Lndry for my first-ever hackathon. I wrote a Medium article detailing my experiences, what I learned, and what I’ll be sure to do differently in the future.

Whiteout Watch
December 2013 - April 2014
An iOS application that analyzed weather data using a hand-crafted algorithm and the Yahoo! Weather API to give the probability of snow days in given school districts.

Enjoyed by tens of thousands of students on the east coast, Whiteout Watch earned me the Student Technologist of the Year award from the Technology Alliance of Central New York.
