Kento Kawakami

Analog photographer, darkroom resident, nature fanatic, enthusiast of the color yellow, gummy aficionado, ramen critic, and a really bad figure skater

Coming from an artistic background, whether it's a darkroom print, the best Pappardelle con Funghi in the world, cosplay, and now full-stack applications, Kento has always loved creating things. As a former graphic design student at USF, Kento built on his knowledge of design by adding code to his arsenal of experiences. When he is not coding, you'll often find him dancing with his dog, Kodak in the living room, developing photographs in his darkroom, going out on clueless adventures around the country with his camera, or practicing his backward crossovers at an ice rink.

Kento's capstone project, Smash Combos, takes learning to play a new character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate (a fighting game for the Nintendo Switch) to a whole new level. Players can upload character combos, which are visually represented through controller buttons and video segments, on loop to share with others in the community.
