I’ve made an Android app at UofTHacks named Thrive that won IBM’s sponsor prize for best use of their Watson AI.
I’ve also made another application at UofTHacks named EcoEats that was given an honourable mention for Fiix Software’s Sustainability sponsor prize.

I am currently working on making a guide for the HP Pavillion 14-bk061st. This won’t be the first time I open up an HP Pavillion but it will be the first time I open up a device with the aim of making a guide for others to follow.
