Hi! I'm

A bit about me

Most of the time, you'll find me making software and hardware projects. I mainly work with Python, Java, and Javascript, but I love learning new things to create my projects. I also enjoy taking photographs and making music.

I'm currently 17 years old and I attend Sir John A. Macdonald S.S. in Waterloo, Ontario. I am pursuing a career in Computer Science and my goal is to invent something cool and impactful in the future.

Some of my projects

Tabular

Run any key macro upon face detection through the wireless camera module.

Kinetic New Tab

A beautiful, minimalist, functional new tab extension for Chrome

Balls and Walls - Made in Python Tkinter

Balls and Walls

A fun physics game made with Tkinter where you draw in walls to bounce walls into a crate

Botanical Workspace

An extreme productivity app which floods a real plant with water when the user is distracted.
