Treasurer


Hello! I am currently a sophomore studying Computer Engineering. I was born in Alamo, California but moved to New Zealand for a few years before coming back to the Bay Area where I hope to stay. I just started coding my freshman year so I am always trying to learn new skills, whether that be online or at a hackathon. I also love to travel, camp, play games, cook, and of course take care of my family's chickens. If you are new to computer science or just have questions, I would be happy to help you out!



Secretary


Hey ACM Broncos! I’m currently a first year student from San Jose studying computer science. I like playing around with and reading into web development, internet of things, and data science. Aside from programming, I enjoy the art of dance — more specifically acrobatics, tap, ballet, and jazz. When I’m not dancing or programming, you can probably find me looking at memes and using the weary face emoji because it’s always a great day to be a bronco. Feel free to tag me in any funny memes you find on social media with the weary face emoji or reach out to me about anything else!



Webmaster


Hello! I am a Computer Science and Engineering undergraduate student ('19) who was born in San Jose. I first started programming in 9th grade and have developed a passion for both tutoring peers and building products such as single-page web applications, internal APIs, and IRC bots ever since. Over the last five years, I have dabbled in over 14 programming languages and have interned at both startups and big companies. I'm excited to spend time with you (the awesome members) learning more and sharing information.



Industry Liaison


Hi! I’m Cole and I’m a double major in Computer Science and Economics from the Seattle, WA area. I’ve always had a passion for technology, but didn’t begin studying Computer Science until an AP CS course my senior year of high school.
