To read about the applications I developed in 2015, click on one in the submenu.
- I participated in MHacks V, a well-known hackathon hosted at the University of Michigan. Applicants must be selected to attend due to the limited amount of space and the quality of the available engineers. Of the over 1,000 participants at that semester’s event, I was one of only 150 high school students.
- I was the subject of an article in U.S. News & World Report, entitled “Teen App Developer Sets Sights on Future as Next Steve Jobs.”
- I was in a short television clip on FOX 5 New York entitled “STEM standouts from New York.”
- I attended a TEDxTeen event focused on young entrepreneurship.
- I attended the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference a second time, again on a student scholarship ticket. I was one of 300 students selected to attend the event.
- I was included in FOX’s podcast, Fast Forward, in a segment called “A Teen Taking Over An App Store Near You, Betterment CEO Talks Robo Investing & Bogus Crowd Funding Campaigns.”
- From June to August, I attended Make School‘s summer program for iOS development in Swift. Make School is a Y-Combinator funded college alternative program based in San Francisco.
- I was featured in a television piece for CNBC entitled “Searching for Zuckerbergs: Inside a start-up summer camp.”
- I participated in the AngelHack and AT&T Mobile hackathons in Sunnyvale and San Francisco, CA, respectively. I also participated in these events the following year.
- I interned for the Workflow team – a small array of young developers with an extremely successful automation/productivity application in the App Store, with the team headed by Thiel fellow and MIT drop-out, Ari Weinstein. Workflow has since been acquired by Apple and is now included on all iOS devices as the Shortcuts application.
- I attended meetings to assist the retired members of my community in using various forms of technology.
- I attended PennApps XII, one of the country’s first and largest hackathons hosted at the University of Pennsylvania.
- I was featured in local newspaper, Newsday, in a piece entitled “Way to Go: Grant Goodman, Sea Cliff.”
- I was accepted to PennApps XIII, but was unable to attend due to inclement weather.
