I created MyGenda Student Planner the summer after my Freshman year after constantly forgetting my schedule or not knowing where my classes were at the beginning of the school year. The necessity for a digital solution grew even stronger after I kept misplacing my paper agenda.
With MyGenda, users can keep track of homework, notes, record lectures, save pictures, and get task and class reminders.
I built this smart mirror the summer after my sophomore year after seeing a video on Facebook of a similar device in a mall. This mirror is built with a panel from an old monitor, a sheet of glass, a one-way mirror film, and a Raspberry Pi. The casing for all the hardware was built with parts from Home Depot and a bit of handy work I learned from my 7th grade woodworking class. The software is a combination of a open source library called Magic Mirror and a custom voice recognition Alexa script I added.
The mirror can tell the time, display the weather, look up videos, search pictures, control your music, and interact with Alexa. Here is a demo video:
Glimpse was originally built for the Congressional App Challenge. It uses machine learning to offer the visually impaired and blind community a ‘glimpse’ into the world around them. The app narrates the environment for the visually impaired by recognizing objects, speaking them out loud, and measuring distance from contact in order to help the blind community see the world and navigate spaces. When I was invited to the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference this past June, Glimpse was featured on the app store homepage!

This app was built for PennApps XVII, an international hackathon with ~1000 participants who are high school and college students. Allergy Alert uses image recognition to identify allergens contained in popular grocery foods and fast food items. We ended up placing in the Top 30 with this app!
Munch was built during ProfHacks 2018, a hackathon with ~250 participants from surrounding states. Munch is a platform for restaurants to sell unsold food at discounted prices at the end of each day to increase profit and reduce food wastage.
AirTunes was built at PennApps XVIII, an international hackathon that boasted close to 1000 participants this past September. My team built a software that can recognize body gestures and correspond them to a sound. With AirTunes, users can create loop music simply by dancing.
We ended up placing in the Top 30 and won premium subscriptions to Wolfram Alpha!
During my sophomore year, a group of friends from my robotics team and I designed an application called SCIO, an acronym for "Socialize. Collaborate. Inspire. Overcome". The idea behind the app was to harness social media influence to generate funding for rare, orphan diseases through challenges like the popular "Ice Bucket Challenge". We submitted the app to the Verizon App Challenge and placed 1st in the State of NJ, granting us $5000 in funding for our school's robotics team! This money allowed us to purchase new machinery for our workshop!
WWP GPA Calculator
This was my very first application that I published my freshman year in high school. It’s been used by 410 students in the district to calculate their GPA!
This was the submission for the TSA Digital Video Production event. We ended up placing 1st at the State Conference and 3rd at the National Conference!
Chairman's Award Submission
This was a video I filmed and edited for my robotics team's Chairman's Award Submission. The Chairman's Award is given to the team that best exemplifies the values of FIRST and spreads the message of FIRST in the community. We ended up winning this at our district competition!
