Ryan "Morty" Rickaby

Vice President
Chemical Engineering '19
My name is Morty Smith of dimension C-137. I am 14 years old and attend Harry Herpson High School under the direction of Principal Vagina, no relation. I am a lacklustre student studying 3rd year chemical engineering, although I am terrible at math and in reality are as dumb as they come. I am mainly known for my relationship with my grandpa, and only friend, Rick and the rip-roaring adventures we go on through dream worlds, parallel universes, multi-dimensions, as well as Microverses, Miniverses, and Teenyverses. Although I told Scroopy Noopers that I'm an idiot and have been seen to have deep-set repressed anger issues, I do have some redeeming qualities. My swift thinking defeated Gonnorhea inside Anatomy park, and I tricked and killed the telepathic Fart with an antimatter gun. While inside the Teenyverse, I found the Tree People, was accepted into their group, learned their language and culture, and worked my way up the ranks until I commanded them, all within a few months. I recently moved to another dimension as a result of Rick mistakenly turning all of C-137, including the rest of my family, into Cronenbergs. In my spare time, I enjoy daydreaming about fellow math classmate Jessica, alone in my room.

Born in a tiny hippie commune known as Quadra Island, I grew up in the harsh wilderness of mid-BC. I'm a professional Chef and video game enthusiast who digs technology on a sometimes uncomfortable level. In my spare time I can be found around the Cheeze or watching anime at 5AM in the Haus with my bros.

Hailing from the village of Kelowna, I moved to Vancouver in 2011 and never returned (except for Christmas and long weekends). I enjoy playing Smash 64, wearing shorts, and long walks on the beach (bring a tent).


Corwin "Porridge" Shanner

Computer Engineering '19
I grew up in the small town of Summerland, BC before coming to UBC. I tend to take a lot of volunteer positions for everything I'm involved in, 2 for Sigma Phi Delta and 4 for the Engineering undergraduate society, so probably too much, but I'll survive. I'm always down to do something active, like mountain biking, skiing, running, swimming, etc.


Jarod "Pinocchio" Ben-Oliel

Haus Manager
Electrical Engineering '18
Oh! Sorry, didn't notice you reading my bio. What's that you say? "The Haus is burning down behind me? Ah! How typical. Don't worry about it, only fourth time this week. My name is Jarod Ben-Oliel, fourth year electrical student on Co-op and resident Haus Manager. When I'm not busy keeping the Haus standing - What's that? Come again? Yes, I know it's burning. I said, "keep standing," not, "keep non-flammable." Anyways… When I'm not busy with school and work, I explore music on my piano, watch shows on Netflix, and spend time playing games to catch up with friends and family both near and afar. If you have any Haus related concerns or questions, come ask me. Otherwise I'm always happy to meet a new face. Take care and have a nice day!


Jake "Cable" MacDonald

Publicity Representative
Mining Engineering '19
I'm in my 3rd year of Mining Engineering I'm the Social Media "Expert" in charge of our Facebook page. More importantly, I brew beer for the brotherhood. I'm fairly active in both the EUS and Mining communities, holding various volunteer positions within both organizations. I can be found sleeping through my 8 am classes, or hanging out in the ESC, where I should be studying but am usually passed out on one of the bean bag chairs (10/10 would recommend). When awake, I can be found browsing memes or watching the first Leafs game of every NHL season while saying, "Boys, I think this is our year. I got a good feeling."

Born in the UK, I have lived in the small town of Morinville, Alberta since 2010.

I love to run and swim in my spare time, while playing games and having controversial discussions or debates.

I am a second year Geological Eng student who often remembers I've already found the meaning of life and lose all motivation to work. Hit me up for some badass pancakes or to lose in FIFA. I'm also the most likely person in the frat to hug you if you're sad.

Yury "Chuckles/Tubby" Viachaslavovich Zhuk

Member at 'Large'
Statistics '20
Everything I do is just a stepping stone towards buying my yacht.
AI is cool and I'm lowkey obsessed with the singularity, that's part of the reason why I'm going into data science. I can't think of a way to describe myself because everything changes so quickly!
