Home of an aspiring Software Engineer
Welcome! I'm Sean, both a Computer Engineering graduate and a third year Software Development student from Seneca College.
I'm always exploring new technologies but check out what I'm familiar with to the right

2nd Place- HackingGood 2017
Our group ideated, wireframed and pitched Spotlight, a high-fidelity prototype that faciliates learning in a non-conventional way by connecting individuals with experienced mentors to learn more about possible career paths. Spotlight would use an AI assistant in combination with NLP to develop a special profile for deeper connections based on each individual.
Adobe XD was key in bringing Spotlight to life.
4th Place- Genesys Toronto Hackathon 2017
Our team ideated, developed and pitched Cloud 9, a Google Chrome extension designed to translate incoming and outgoing chat messages such that a call center agent who isn't familiar with a customers spoken language could read and respond in a language familiar to the themselves.
Cloud 9 was constructed with HTML, jQuery, Node.js, Express.js and IBM Watson with one serving of an all-nighter.
The theme of this years hackathon was to develop a new and innovative way to recruit top tech talent.
Our team, Team Inner Source, developed and pitched Inner Source, a platform in which business units could pose projects in an open-source setting to be completed by individuals. Upon completion, individuals would "own their contribution", allowing them and their acquired skillset to be identified in a streamlined hiring pipeline.
Hosted by OpenIDEO, this was first of many events bringing together bright minds to brainstorm, ideate and prototype how we might get products to people without generating plastic waste!
Our team devised and pitched a PoC app called "Recyclift". Recyclift allows users to request "Recyclifters" (equipped with sponsored backpacks) to pickup their waste/recyclables. In exchange, revenue from these sponsorships would then be used to provide incentives for these individuals in addition to points being awarded for their local community leaderboard.
In partnership with the DMZ, Ryerson Futures and General Motors, this was the first-ever GM Hackathon event in Toronto! We worked on solutions to enable AI powered assistants to aid the way we work, move and play in an ever-growing autonomous age.
Our team developed and pitched a PoC AI assistant named "Rosie" which enabled the real-time assessment of a driver’s physical and mental state by utilizing metrics and past medical history from both wearable devices and driver speech in order to proactively guard against occurrences such as Road Rage.
3rd Place- OSCE Days Hackathon Toronto 2017
In partnership with the Food Systems Lab, this was the first-ever Open Source Circular Economy Days (OSCEdays) event in Toronto. The theme of this year’s one-day hackathon was Closing the Food Loop. We worked on solutions to reduce food waste and create a circular food system in the Greater Toronto Area.
Our team, partnered with President and CEO, Nicholas Steele, of LyoFresh Technologies to overhaul his existing website.
I managed and delegated tasks regarding the implementation of the LyoFresh website. Our team was awarded 3rd place by a panel of industry judges.
