MaskFAQ is a website that aims to test the filtration efficiency of homemade mask materials using standard N95 test methodology. Unlike many homemade test setups, MaskFAQ sent samples to get tested by TSI, Inc, -- makers of the TSI 8130 testing machine used to test N95 masks. In addition to sharing information about mask materials, the website aims to answer frequently asked questions about mask usage, mask construction, and what materials to avoid.

After reading a Business Insider article that mentioned Chloe Schempf's GoFundMe campaign, I contacted Chloe to see if she needed help building a site in the spring of 2020, with the goal of publishing the test results, documenting the N95 test methodology, as well as sharing other mask information. Shortly after the site went live I added a few UI/UX enhancements to the site to make it easier to search and visualize test results for different homemade mask materials.

Soapbox Music, LLC

My colleague Brendan Finucane and I founded Soapbox Music out of our own need for a dependable, affordable, and high quality recording and rehearsal space in the city of Chicago. Recording studios are notoriously expensive to start and maintain, but our cooperative model drastically reduces the cost and risk for all musicians involved, while simultaneously creating opportunities to connect, share, and collaborate with others.

DIY Portable Mini-amp

This is a portable battery operated little amplifier I built to plug other portable things into and to also use it as a test amp for other projects. The circuit is based on a 5 Watt LM384 mono chip amp, taking a 1/8" stereo jack and resistor summing to a mono output. Giant volume knob, on/off rocker switch with power LED light. 4 Ohm, 6 Watt speaker pulled from an old Creative 5.1 set. Wooden enclosure with a custom designed speaker hole.
