Projects

Pinkberry Night


Pinkberry Night is a template I built for the opensource wiki software, Dokuwiki. I wanted a template that had scrollable tables with fixed headers, and a table of contents that followed me as scrolled through content. And that's exactly what I created. I also added some styling to a few of the plugins I used for aesthetic consistency.

Stellar Dark


Stellar Dark is a theme I built for the opensource note taking app, Trilium. I learned a lot about what it means to work within existing code bases and will likely learn more about what it takes to maintain a project as Trilium and its incorporated projects continue to be updated.

Resume Builder


The Resume Builder is part of an ongoing project to develop an online application that can create customizable resumes. It is in its beta stage now, with plans to improve its functionality over the coming months.

Portfolio Site


You're already here! The portfolio site simply exists to showcase my experience, education, and projects. Like the Resume Builder, this site will grow and expand overtime, as I learn new skills and complete new projects.
