About Me

My name is Ben Klein. I am 16 years old and am a junior at the Davis Renov Stahler(DRS) High school. I am the president of my school's Makerspace club. The Makerspace club has over 25 members experimenting with circuitry, 3D printing, computer building, computer programming, and inventing. In addition to that, I run the DRS Live Broadcasting network. DRS Live streams virtually every home basketball and hockey game. I create highlight videos after many of these games, which are posted on YouTube, and our website, for everyone to watch. I developed the DRS Live app, which allows you to watch live games, previous games, and highlight videos. The app also gives you the ability to view schedules and stats, and receive notifications for each of the teams. I am proficient in iOS(Swift) and Android(Java) app development, Arduino, and the basics of engineering. I am knowledgeable in the creation of websites on many different platforms including WordPress and others. During the summer of 2015, I interned for a startup called Picit, which is a new iPhone app that allows you to share up to 4 photos side by side with friends, who can vote on their favorite. You can poll your friends and see their responses in real time through your pictures. During July 2016, I was the photographer/videographer in Camp Kaylie, a camp which integrates campers with and without developmental disabilities. For the month of August, I interned at a wealth management firm in New York City, learning about and working with the IT department, as well as the research and operations teams. Overall I am extremely tech savvy with knowledge of many different types of technologies, and anything related to computers.

Skills

App Development
I am proficient in iOS(Swift) and Android(Java) app development. I have made many apps that have not been published, but my most impressive app is DRS Live, which is on the app store. For that app, and all the others, I do everything starting with the first prototypes of the app with a basic design, to the backend server which stores all the data and metrics for the app.

Broadcasting
I'm an expert in broadcasting, especially live streaming of sports games. I know how to set up streaming software with multiple camera angles, audio sources, scoreboards, and other overlays. I have a lot of experience from DRS Live, where we use all of these techniques plus instant replays, and other cool elements to make the broadcast really amazing. This can be used for any event that you want to be live streamed and/or available afterwards to (re)watch, not just sports.

Video Production
I shoot video, and do post-production video editing. For example, I make highlight videos after games are streamed on DRS Live. They include the best plays from each quarter or period, and advanced animations, which add a lot of energy to the videos.

Photography / Videography
I do photography and videography for events and photo shoots. I take these pictures and raw footage, and convert them into edited slideshows or films. 

Web Design
Using HTML, CSS, or programs like WordPress, I can create amazing websites like this one. Every website should be unique, and should make people feel good about what they're looking at. That's what I create.

Just some things I’ve done

DRS Live app

This app allows you to watch live games, previous games, and highlight videos. The app also gives you the ability to view schedules and stats, and receive notifications for each of the teams. Notifications include reminders about upcoming games, updates during games, and results from completed games.

Highlight Videos

I make highlight videos after games are streamed on DRS Live, using Adobe Premiere Pro. They include the best plays from each quarter or period, separated by advanced animation created in Adobe After Effects, and end off with another animation promoting our next game.

DRS Live Broadcasting

I run the DRS Live broadcasting network, which streams virtually every home basketball and hockey game to YouTube, our website, and the app. I organize staff, get equipment, set up audio equipment for announcers, and cameras in a few different angles. I then control the score, camera angle, and time in Wirecast during the game. When goals are scored in hockey, or at the end of quarters in basketball, I send out notifications with updates to all people subscribed to that team in the DRS Live app.

Text Arrange app

With this app, you can create, scramble, and re-order words or sets of words.Once you create a set of terms that you would like to mix up, click continue and you can play the game right on your device. Once you play the game, a unique game identifier will be generated, which you, or anyone else, can enter in on their device to access and re-order that same set of terms! You can use this for anything that involves order, steps, or patterns! The possibilities are endless!
