SumOne is a professional site intended to show more about an individual than their resume ever could. This site is the perfect marriage between the professionalism and networking found on LinkedIn and the individualism that drives every employer to a potential hire’s Facebook.

Thanks to Kimberly Newsum for her contribution to this project as well.

Social Phones

Social Phones aims to change phones from a social distraction to a way to meaningfully connect in person. Through the platform of news, Social Phone keeps people connected to the outside world by investing in the people around them.


Flexicam is a camera that recognizes the increasing need to represent oneself accurately in a world of social media. We designed Flexicam to be a “social camera,” allowing the photographer to simultaneously be a subject and while still maintaining control over the photo.

Thanks to Joy Palludan for her contribution to this project as well.
