I am from the town of Morris, IL, but moved to Verona, IL when I was in 3rd grade. After graduating from high school in 2015, I enrolled in Joliet Junior College, a community college. After studying for three years, I graduated with my AAS in Game Design & Development and decided to transfer to Bradley University, where I changed my major to User Experience Design.
Shelter Buddy was a project that was worked on during the Fall Semester of 2019. The program(s) that were used were Figma and Adobe Aero. The project was was an AR/MR experience that would allow users, that when they were to visit an animal shelter, they could put on a headset and with each animal they visited, it would give them the basic information about not only the dog, but the breed itself. It would also give users the option to mark if they were interested in adopting or fostering the dogs, and that information would be sent directly back to the front desk.
SIGN THEORY was a project that was worked on during the Fall Semester of 2019. The program(s) that were used were Figma and Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator. The project was an Apple Watch application that would teach users sign language. The users would be able to go though and learn the alphabet, numbers, and simple greetings. At then end of the learning session, users would be able to quiz their knowledge on what they learned, and when each lesson was completed, they earned a badge.
Disaster Preparation was a project that was created for two finals at the end of the Spring 2019 semester. The program that was used was Adobe XD. The project was a smartphone application that would provide users information about natural disasters, as well as provide them with the information that they would need in order to prepare and survive them. It also included what would be needed in a basic supply kit, and any other items that they would need and where it would be best to keep these kits.
