Aaron Cawte

President

​📸🎧🏳‍🌈😎

I'm really into design for User Experience, and modern web technologies.

Find me behind my camera (and occasionally in front of it), 8,000 lines deep into my own stylesheets, and stressing about things that aren't even important.

Edward Gardiner

Secretary

​😩🍆💦💯

Really good at starting projects and then dropping them a few days later once the hype dies down.

Interested in developing things that either do something cool or make something easier.

Has many regrets over having other committee members choose his emojis above.

Libby Young

Social Secretary

​💯😇🍹💪

Often described by people as approachable and friendly.

I have my own radio show, go to the gym and I'm a cheerleader. I'm creative so I'll be able to come up with some great socials.

Sesh calls you got to answer.

Toby Drakesmith

Sports Secretary

⚽✈🍕🍺

I'm 22 years old, a mature student apparently. Heading into my second year at uni. Big football fan, and a fan of sports in general.

Love to travel and have spent a lot of time the past few years doing just that! Also love beer.

Louis Hampton

Treasurer

🚅🎲🎹🍻

I've been a tech lover since I was very young, and I've always got a project going on or some idea that I can't keep quiet about!

Feel free to stop me if you see me as I'm always happy to chat about the society, programming or university matters.

Jan Faracik

Web Admin

​🎧🥔🎮📷

Huge nerd. Lover of music, design and tech.

I'll often be seen working on my own projects, wrapping up university ones or fretting over the big world out there.

I'll let you know how it goes...
