Technological Innovations for Inclusive Learning and Teaching (tiilt) Lab
I worked with the Minecraft Camps team in launching a local library summer camp for students in the Evanston D65 area, developing challenge maps in CodeBuilder Python ranging from speedbuilding to escape rooms. Additionally, I supervised students while in-session to ensure of a healthy playing environment. Currently, I am working with the lab to develop an application at the crossroads of music and data science which aims to quantize qualities of a musical piece.

Raburn Series Premier League
I lead a 10-person team dedicated to improving the user experience of online team chess. I develop spreadsheets which become the stronghold of data presentation for team and player stats. In addition, I am in charge of initializing the rules and structure for league play, managing staff members and easing up tensions among players should the situation present itself.

Den Leader Assistant
Cub Scouts of America
I was at the forefront of instruction for Cub Scouts in the Blackhawk Area, leading the reciting of the Scout Oath and the Cub Scout Motto. I gathered the Scouts around to sit down and talk about an educational topic of the week. I would ask Scouts to elaborate on their thoughts along with ensuring Scouts felt comfortable and involved. I also supervised Scouts in physical activities including tag, making sure no harm was made.
