After graduating the Eleven Fifty Academy, I went directly into the workforce by a company called Channelbound. My job is to design, create, and test console applications that interacted with Excel files, validating, inserting, and calculating complex data for many large companies and to preserve good relations with those same companies.
This project is ongoing. I am still under Channelbound's employ.

Roleplaying Game Session Management
In the last week or so of Eleven Fifty's Advanced Learning Program, I worked on a web application called DungeonHub. I worked in reference to a tutorial on pluralsight to do so, but I've made this website my own. The website has since been stopped, as it was just a demonstration project.
This project is open source. You can access it at any time here. The project has ceased development in the light of going to college, and there are much more comprehensive game creation resources out there.

A real-time chat using ReactJS and Firebase.
I built and deployed a simple chat app in a short time using ReactJS for the front-end and Firebase for authentication and database management.
I'll be adding new features when I can, such as multiple chat rooms and bottum-up scrolling.
A roguelike based on hunger.
With Do Starve, I took the sample Unity 2D Roguelike game and made it my own. This included making the area bigger, tweaking the zombie and food spawn systems to make it more difficult, and completely revamping the wall placement system. Do Starve works on Mac, PC, Linux, has controls for smartphone, and can be played on the web.
This project is open source. You can access it at any time here, but my work on the project is finished, unless something motivates me to continue. This is made with the Unity game engine, accessible here.

Challenges in a language of your choice.
Project Euler is a website designed to challenge developers at both their programming logic and mathematical abilities, both of which I excel at. I've dabbled a bit in it. I've been occasionally going back to complete a few more at a time. You can view the Project Euler website here.
This project is open source. You can access it at any time here. I plan on expanding this repository over time, potentially answering every question on the Project Euler website.
Tinder clone with Mario characters to learn Parse.
University High School hired a consultant from 1150 to teach Advanced iOS App Development at their school. I, as a student of UHS, took this class, and this was one of the assignments that the teacher, Brett Keck, gave us to work on. It is a clone of Tinder using Parse to connect with Facebook.
This project is open source. You can access it at any time here, but my work on the project is finished, unless something motivates me to continue. This is made with Xcode, accessible here.

Purpose: Linking Swift knowledge with Parse
Category: Swift Development
After completing the Accelerated Learning Program in the Eleven Fifty Academy, we were given a mock contract for a web application and two weeks to complete given tasks, and assigned a team. I was Project Manager for my team of four, and consequently distributed tasks and managed time, all while completing my own tasks in the code. We completed all requirements, and even completed a lot of the stretch goals.
This project is open source. You can access the website here, and the code here, but my work on the project is finished, unless something motivates me to continue. Note that while I was project manager, a colleague of mine was the Configuration Manager, so the above link leads to his github, not mine.

A website designed to showcase apprentices available for hire.
Five weeks into the apprenticeship at the Eleven Fifty Academy, all of the remaining apprentices were approached by John Qualls, the owner, and given a project: we were assigned to make a webpage to advertise the capabilities and availability for ourselves, the apprentices, who were for-hire. I was one of two testers, and together the other tester and I created a test document and tested each product sent to us for things like email authentication and operation of links.

A multi-page wordpress website
During my time at Channelbound, I was directed to perform many tasks. One of those was creating a wordpress website for a collaborative project between two Affordable Care Act companies. I was directed to re-format some pages to look more visually appealing, and design some pages from the ground up. You can see the completed project here.
This project is ongoing. I am currently admin of the west marches game.
