AWSAuditor

We do a monthly infrastructure audit at Sport Ngin, to make sure we have enough AWS reserved instances and that are using them to the fullest extent. This used to involve manually going through each of our accounts, tallying all current running instances and then counting our reserved instances.

I wrote a small command-line tool which does this automatically and exports the information to a Google Spreadsheet. It allows us to audit our reserved instances more frequently helping to save costs.

Tic-Tac-Toe

A classmate and I designed and built a touch based Tic-Tac-Toe game using an arduino and ITO coated plastic covering an array of 13-segment led displays.

I created the schematic and layout of a printed circuit board using EAGLE which allowed for matrix addressing of each of displays.

A short video demonstration can by found on Youtube

Clay

I took my first ceramics class in 5th grade, but didn't do anything else with clay until highschool. I got really into ceramics during college, and spent almost all my free time in the studio.

I managed the Platteau, Lewis & Clark's student art center and ceramic studio, and helped manage the Barnard Clay Collective at Columbia.

Music

sylvester&&warrenson, was a shortlived project of two kids stuck in the suburbs over summer vacation. We wanted something to show for all our time spent in my friend Blake's basement, and this is what we came up with.

I played keys, drums (though not very well), and mandolin (not on any of our recorded songs).

Blake played drums, guitar, and keys.
