Here's a few examples of my work

Dying Horizon
Dying Horizon

Dying Horizon is a free apocalypse role-playing browser game that throws you into a bleak and unforgiving alternate reality. Experience a multiplayer turn-based image and text game of survival and conquest.

Dying Horizon was a fun hobby project I made several years ago to really dive deep into the Laravel PHP framework.

Some of what I used...
  • Laravel
  • Zurb's Foundation
  • Intercooler.js

HEB
H-E-B barcode scanner web app

I built this web app solely to solve first-world grocery shopping problems for my wife. She loves knowing the total before checkout because she's a frugal shopper, but ordering online causes you to miss out on so many recipe ideas.

I was able to access H-E-B's private API to retrieve product data. This app mostly uses vanilla Javascript, but sprinkles in a tiny bit of PHP for the API calls to overcome CORs issues.

Some of what I used...
  • Vanilla Javascript
  • Quagga.js (barcode scanning)
  • Tailwind CSS
  • H-E-B's API

Rabon Chapel Church of Christ

When I went to work designing and creating the Rabon Chapel Church of Christ site the goal was minimalism with a strong emphasis on a clean mobile experience. Traditional contact methods are reduced in favor of a more modern live chat approach of communication.

Some of what I used...
  • Laravel
  • Tailwind CSS
  • Scout (Laravel Package)
  • Wink (Laravel Package)
