I am a soon-to-graduate student pursuing a degree in Computer Science. I am seeking a position where I may use my formal education, creativity, enthusiasm and attention to detail. I want to learn how a company works, its structure, products and services, so that I can provide insights and analysis to business challenges and be a valuable asset to the organization.

If given an opportunity, my motivation, strong interpersonal skills, and attention to detail will allow me to make a positive contribution to my team and the organization.

Computer Programming Projects

Life: the task was to code the logic for the digital game: on a square grid, each space was either “alive” or “dead,” and the number of adjacent spaces that were alive or dead in a round determined the state of that space on the next round (the change in state was visually represented with an animation that I was instructed to make change frames every 100 milliseconds); the intended end result was for the grid to be mostly dead with several small patches of living spaces that might flash between the two states according to the game’s logic

Blackjack: I was given multiple classes in which to code the logic for the card game; the hardest portion was writing the code that determined if an ace in the hand would be worth one point or eleven

Minesweeper: all work used only the driver class, but it took my implementation of all methods; some methods called others to fulfill the necessary operations, particularly the method which checked whether or not adjacent grid spaces were valid (in bounds) and were a location of one of the game’s mines

Band: this project was written as self-assigned code-writing practice; I created all classes and determined how each would interact with one another in either the driver class or in their implementations; the idea was to create a program that had the capability of digitally adding a student into a particular level of a band program and adding music for each level to play at a concert.

Digital Animation: I had to use the animation concepts of the course to make a 20-30 second animation (480-720 frames) using proided models for a ball and Luxo the lamp..
