blakeBlake, ’16  Blake Elias. Dreamer of dreams. Hacker of hacks.
matt_d
Matt, ’16
From the exotic hinterland of Pittsford, NY emerges the renaissance man that is Matt DeCross, class of 2016. Majoring in exactly the courses that are 8 mod 10, Matt is skilled with the whiteboard, studying topics from complex analysis to inflationary theory (in the lab of the man who founded the field, one would do well to add); the drumstick, playing in settings from MITSO to the Physics Rock Concert; the semiconductor, controlling its transistors according to his every whim when taking the helm at software from Mathematica to Team Fortress 2; and the pillow, sleeping for spans from a bit after midnight to like 2 or 3 in the afternoon the next day.Matt is AEPi’s Events and Culture Chair, spreading the joy of live music, thought-provoking plays, Halo nights, and other eventful culture throughout the brotherhood. He is also a polar bear. Whether the relationship between these is causal is an area for further research.
adam_e
Adam, ’16
Adam Eagle hails from the beautiful city of San Diego, California. When he is not studying computer science, Adam likes to lift at the gym, shop for the latest fashions, drink exotic teas, and listen to opera. Adam was the first employee at Blade, a startup in Boston which he currently works for part-time. At the fraternity, Adam has served as House Manager and is most proud of being the first brother in recent history to construct a functional bike rack.
micha_b
Micha, ’16
  Originally from Los Alamos, NM, Micha is a junior studying chemical engineering. When he’s not busy trying to understand thermo, Micha enjoys playing video games, such as Mario Kart or Dota, or watch TV shows, like Breaking Bad and Arrested Development. He holds many positions in the house such as Brother at Large and Steward, but the most important (and delicious) one is Cake Chair!
noam_b
Noam, ’16
  Noam Buckman is a mean robot maker. Sometimes his math-related research leads him to work with crazy but awesome people in crazy places, like Israel, where he spent a year studying in yeshiva and a summer conducing economics research. Noam is greatly involved in Jewish life on campus, becoming Hillel president last year and serving in leadership positions for MIT Students for Israel, the Kosher Food Club, and the MIT Orthodox Minyan. He enjoys planning events and welcoming people into the community. You may also hear shouts of “DJ Nom-Nom” as he leads the party with the best beats. Noam is a junior, majoring in mechanical engineering and mathematics, and looks forward to TA-ing for 2.01 in the fall and continuing his research in oceanís engineering.
ziv_s
Ziv, ’16
  Code-wizard. Jazz-clarinetist. Sleep-deprived. These are all apt descriptions of Ziv, a junior from Brookline, MA
studying math with computer science. Outside of playing with microcontrollers, he enjoys Haskell, robotics,
algebraic topology, and making similarly complicated subjects look easy to kids he teaches through MIT’s ESP.
Among Ziv’s greatest contributions to the house has definitely been hacking together the Portal-themed graphic design
in Inkscape for our PIE fundraiser.
isaac_s
Isaac, ’16
An aspiring double major in courses 14 and 17, he was the deputy field director of a congressional campaign the summer before enrolling at MIT, and has since worked on Capitol Hill in the office of Congressman Joe Kennedy (even running into him outside our house while Joe walks his dog, Banjo). He returned to DC after sophomore year as part of the MIT DC internship program to work at the Brookings Institution. A Brookline native, he has lived abroad and traveled extensively, making him quite the connoisseur.
