Ryan Bald – Treasurer
I’m a 2nd year Computer Science Engineering major from San Jose who likes to play basketball and watch movies in his free time.
Brandon Hastings – President, Vice President, Corporate Outreach Chair, Project Management Chair
I am a 3rd year Business Information Management major with executive experience managing small IT based companies. I’m an avid gamer and founder of a large gaming organization where I lead the staff operations for several divisions in various multiplayer games. I have substantial industry domain knowledge with IT Systems and Administration crossed with Business Management. As a multi-business owner and leader of a gaming organization, I have gained a lot of relatable experience getting people to come together and I’ve learned what it takes to create and manage future ICSSC events. I hope to become ICSSC President and innovate new helpful and exciting events for ICS students.
Karan Kanwar – Corporate Outreach Chair
Description coming soon.
Dalton Kraatz – President, Vice President, Project Management Chair
I am a second year Computer Science major, with declared specializations in Information and Algorithms. I love practical information, and creating things that are useful in everyday life.
I’ve been involved with ICS Student Council very early on in my UCI career, and am often an advocate for other ICS students to become active in a club when possible. I’ve been a member of the ICSSC project “EventsICS”, a QRC event registration and check-in system, for two years, and have made a lot of friends through developing that project. I am also the ICS Student Council Treasurer, Historian, and Student Events chair. In short, I am very involved with the day-to-day of ICSSC.
I am also working on my own personal project that is similar to “Athena”, a Monster Hunter Armor set creator, but focuses more on weapons and beginner assistance. Monster Hunter was a passion germinated with the assistance of a close friend, but nurtured by a welcoming, dedicated, and online community. Through this project, I practice my language skills and also hope to give back to new players of Monster Hunter so they are not lost in the mountain of new skills present in each game’s iteration.
Next year, I hope to make Student Council more accessible to all students and ICS clubs, and further engage the conversation on how to best present ICS clubs to students who could benefit from the ever-present conversations outside the classroom.
Chan Woo Park – Project Management Chair, Student Events Chair
I am a first year computer science student, and an active member of the project management group in the ICS Student Council for the past year. I’ve been interested in working on technical projects since high school, and this initiated me to join the ICS Student Council in hopes of using my skills to create cool things. Throughout this year I’ve collaborated on several projects for the club, and have raised an awareness of managing and developing such works. As a new member of the Student Council Board I would like to expand my capabilities by planning on works of greater scales and inducing a strong motivation between project developers, as well as hosting more academic, social events that can benefit the student body.
Sophie Pebworth – Academic and Administrative Affairs (AAA) Chair
I am a first-year Computer Science and Engineering Major and I am running for Academic and Administrative Affairs Chair. In high school I was team captain of my school’s water polo and swim team. In that position I learned management skills, and gained experience facilitating relationships between the coach and students. I also was the founder of the my school’s water polo team and french club. In that position I gained experience recruiting and became comfortable walking up to people I don’t know and starting a conversation. I am a naturally gregarious person who loves sports and computers. Vote for me for AAA chair and I promise to make this coming school year fantastic to the best of my abilities!
Ziliver (Zichao) Yuan – Corporate Outreach, Project Management Chair
I am a freshman ICS student. I have been working for Corporate Outreach department since last year. I negotiated with Pariveda Solutions and helped them hold a workshop about Machine Learning this quarter. I hope to lead the Corporate Outreach department and to build more connections with tech companies for ICS Student Council next year.
