In my free time (which there is little) I like to work on making games. I also consult with NIU Outreach to help develop content for ACT prep and educational games. You can find a couple of games below.
You start with a 3x3, 4x4, or 5x5 grid of lights. They are all turned "on." When you click a light, any light to the left, right, above, and below (including the light you clicked) will change. If it's off, it will turn on. If it's on, it will turn off. The goal is to turn off all the lights.

This game was made by Mary Baker and myself. It takes normal ACT questions and zombifies them. In other words, I turned a typical act math problem into a zombie word problem.

I made this game to be used as a bell ringer for high school math students. It can be modified to be used in any class that uses multiple choice questions. This is a demo version.

Quccu was a project I worked on with Michael Kang. He was the project manager and frontend designer. The project was similar to how a user would search for a job. I helped create the database and backend needed for a user to successfully create and edit an online profile. Instead of searching for jobs, the users can search for other jobseekers. It's a useful tool for employers looking for jobseekers.
In addition to programming the backend for maintaining a profile and the login system, I also programmed a search function. An employer can search by state and job description. It would display jobseekers that match the description, where you can then view their profile, bookmark them (so you can view their profile later), or connect with them (similar to a Facebook friend request.)
