Corn Maze Rake

Designed a pull behind rake for a skid steer loader to knock down dirt piles generated by the tracks while turning. Utilized back of the napkin calculations and drawings to then work with a welder to make a finished product.

Amateur Game Design

Design, prototype, and program basic software and board games in my free time to hone my programming skills and keep the creative juices flowing.
