trojanhacks 2016

Winner: Best Visual Hack

Our team created a chrome extension prevents users from wasting time on recreational websites during a set study period. I designed the UIUX of the extension and programmed the front-end aspects for a simple-to-use interface.

SBHacks 2017

Winner: Organizer's choice

We made a web app that could turn large bodies of text, say an essay, into a sleek presentation slide within the click of a button. I developed the back-end, utilizing Google's language processing API to turn text into bullet points, and I helped design the front-end as well.

SB Hacks 2017

Winner: 2nd place overall

Winner: mlh #hackharassment

Our team tackled the #hackharassment challenge and made a chrome extension that hides hateful comments notoriously found on YouTube videos. I developed the front-end for this extension, mainly consisting of the pop-up window, and I designed the assets using Adobe Illustrator.

Hackpoly 2017

Our lastest hack was a web app that used tracking.js and Google's language API to generate speech bubble's next to one's face using voice and face detection, translate that text, and log it into a sidebar. My role was the front-end developer, and I designed the intro page and the sidebar.

calhacks 2016

Our iOS app aimed to encourage exercise. This running app plays music during a job with a twist. It plays the user's favorite music, but only when the runner is running at their goal pace. If below pace, it plays the user's hated music. I mapped the UIUX of the app on XCode and developed some front-end aspects using Swift.
