7 Minute Workout

This project is an Android 12 mobile application that leads the user on a twelve-step timed exercise, which can run on 99% of Android devices. This project also contains a feature to calculate BMI that can take either imperial or metric units of measurement. Any completed workouts are stored in a database by the date and time completed, which the user can view to see their progress.

I created this project in Android Studio using the Kotlin programming language and utilized packages such as Room, coroutines, lifecycle, and speech.

I led an agile group of three to create a web game, a vertical platformer with custom sprites and animations, that is playable from any computer web browser. This web game was developed using a custom game engine, allowing for increased developer customization. We implemented a custom physics engine, level layouts, a title screen, platforms, obstacles, and a scoring system.

I created this project in VS Code using JavaScript and HTML.

Trivia Maze

I led an agile team of 3 to develop a trivia skills game using a model-view-controller pattern and object-oriented programming. We designed a fully-functioning GUI from scratch with customizable maze size and the ability to save and reload progress. We created a database to store and access multiple-choice trivia questions randomly to improve replayability.

I created this project in IntelliJ using Java and SQLite, utilizing the JavaFX package.
