Senior Thesis
This is my senior design thesis which is focusing on school security and communication during emergencies. I spent a semester and a half conducting research, interviews, ideating, concept development, and developing a final product.
Housewares Competition
Pod is a fridge magnet for people with food allergies. It is a device that users can set up and insert food samples into. Using the device and test strips, it analyzes the food for allergens. In addition, Pod contains a label scanner on the bottom to allow for scanning food labels to see if the food contains their allergen. It is currently being pursued by Purdue for a patent.
Dove Visual Branding
The project goal was to pick an iconic brand and use their branding to create a product they don’t currently sell.
Furniture Project
For our furniture class we were tasked with designing and building a standing cabinet. I was determined to challenge myself with this project and I knew I wanted to create something geometric. Therefore, I played with lines and angles to eventually end up with Maddox.

Competition prompt was to create a product or system that includes at least one extruded aluminum component within the standard 10" extrusion diameter.
