Enemy Clouds (Dec 2017) github repo or try it on expo A Flappy Bird-like game that I made for my COSC 231 "Internet-based Computing" class. It was my first React Native app. The project was originally to make an app with MIT App Inventor but we were given the choice to use another system or framework, so I decided to learn React Native and build my app with it. It was an interesting experience and is what sparked my interest in React Native.
FishNet (Oct 2017) view devpost submission An Android app that helps make your fishing life easier and lazier. It works with a Bluetooth fishing "bobber" to alert you when a fish has been caught. It also lets you share a picture/info about it within the app as well as plotting the catch location on the map of fish catches.

Learning A-Z Offline Books (Summer 2018) As my main project during my Summer 2018 Internship at Learning A-Z, this is a feature I added to the Kids A-Z Android App that allows students to choose a book to save for offline reading at a later time (this would later be able to be expanded to multiple books). It's not yet released, but there are plans for it being released in the future. view info slides
Fast and Mobile: Building Apps with React Native view slides This is a presentation I gave during my internship at Learning A-Z about building cross-platform mobile apps with React Native. I introduced the audience to React & React Native fundamentals (installation, components, props, state, etc), and then live coded a stopwatch app to demonstrate the fundamentals. Using, I was able to allow everyone to try it out on their own phone as I was coding it.
