    For over 4 years I have been the primary front-end developer for suite of applications. Initially I modernized the suite to work on multiple browsers by designing an HTML5/CSS3 template to be applied across the landscape. I have made responsive designs to allow the applications to be viewable on mobile devices and I have continuously made design changes to make OrderIP more usable. I also wrote Java data retrieval modules on OrderIP backend with consideration for efficiency and running time complexity

    I have also done some mobile development and SAP work

Stig's Poetry

A site of poetry yours truly and classmates from middle and high school. Though I could modernize this site, I wrote it in PURE HTML, using no page builders or special editors. Just me and NotePad. Occasionally I throw a new poem on there.

Stig's Poetry


M.U.G.E.N. is a engine for creating your own fighting game. I spent several years in high school and college working on a project I had to realize my "Dream" of a fun Dragonball Z game. M.U.G.E.N. gave me my first experience writing code for something other than a website, and ultimately led to my decision to pursue Computer Science. I am quite famous in the M.U.G.E.N community for this project. This site is also pure HTML made completely from tables and the News(they call them blogs now) is hard coded).

Kunio Dodgeball Translation

An old Geocities page for a project I had to Translate the SNES game Kunio-kun no Dodge Ball dayo Zenin Shuugou! (sequel to the NES game Super Dodgeball). The game was only released in Japan and as such had no English version. I HEX and bitmap edited my way into creating a patch to translate the game into English. Surprisingly the Geocities page is still up.
