Besides my professional experience as a software engineer developing real-time embedded software and simulation software, I have worked on a number of personal projects:

What Does This Tool Do?
Given all of the different devices that take pictures and videos, it can be really difficult to properly organize all of these files. This software tool was developed to organize the pictures and videos from multiple sources into a set of directories organized by date.
Family Recipe Application (http://www.kennedyfamilyrecipes.com/):
Synopsis: This website stores all of my family’s favorite recipes. I’m really proud to have built this site using Django and python (plus tons of other tools). I can’t believe how many new technologies I was exposed to during the creation of this site. The site is currently maintained and I add new recipes from time to time. Here’s a screenshot of the homepage:
This web application is written in python (plus HTML/CSS) using the Django framework.
