The Wallet Capo is exactly what the title says it is - a capo that fits in your wallet. If you play guitar, you probably already know what this is, but for those of you who don't, a capo is a device that one uses to change keys on a guitar without tuning the strings. Capos are useful, but notorious for getting lost. The wallet capo takes the concept and made it into something that is as easy to take along with you as a guitar pick.
The first Beta Capos were shipped out made in house from our 3D printer. There is no need to worry about the finish on the neck of your guitar due to the heavy wall abrasion resistant heat-shrink applied to both sides of the wallet-capo.
The wallet capo sits 3mm thick, fitting snuggly in even the slimmest wallets. It is designed to fit most standard sizes guitars, and comes with multiple slots for size adjustment.
After launching the 3D printed product on Kickstarter I decided to start building a more durable and reliable product.
I decided that the new Wallet Capo would be laser cut out of Delrin after experimenting with a few different materials. Delrin provides a resilient medium to create a capo that will last a long time. The guitar capos are now sold on amazon and on the wallet capo website.

Portals - Group Snapchat
After hearing "why cant I Snapchat in a group" over and over again from my friends I decided to build Portals. Portals is a functional photo sharing social media application. It allows for a group of people to join either a public or password protected photo library called portals. Each user who has access to the portal can upload their own photos increasing the count of photos in the respective portal. When a portal is selected by a user the portal displays the last photo viewed by the respective user. Each time the user double taps, the next most recent photo is displayed, deleting the previous photo permanently from the users access. This app allows groups of people to collectively create a "portal" into each other's world.
The application was created using Xcode, an IDE for native IOS development, I programmed the backend using a parse server, this also allowed me to even setup push notifications for specific events in the application.
