When not working, you might find me at a hackathon or an EDM/Alternative concert in the area or occasionally exploring the limits of traction on my car tires at the racetracks.

I have always had a passion to tinker around with hardware. I co-founded the Robotics Club at my college, during my freshman year.
This was one of my first Robotics projects at DePauw. It's an autonomous rover that uses a cortex micro-controller and an ultrasonic sensor to navigate it's way around obstacles.
The code was written in RobotC. And I adore Wall-E so I gave it a pair of Wall-E eyes as well.
This is an iPhone controlled lamp that I built for my Digital Art class. One can power it on/off and also change its colors remotely over wi-fi using the iOS app.
Real artists ship.
