Adam

Adam "Butterfelt" Summerfelt

President, Slime Master
Chemical and Biological Engineering '23, Class of 2018
Hi there! My name is Adam and I'm from Edmonton, Alberta. I’m in my fourth year of Chemical and Biological Engineering (emphasis on Biological) and doing a minor in Honors Math and Computer Science, but I’ve already had a long round about journey on my way to getting my degree involving stops at 3 different post secondary institutions and a diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology. I enjoy playing board games, drinking craft beer, running, watching the Edmonton Oilers let me down again, and generally getting outside (while remaining socially distant). I’m also pretty involved in the Engineering community, having been the VP Academic of the EUS, a member at large of the PP (First Year) Council, and a team member on an automatic craft beer brewing contest. I'm also an active member of Engineers for a Sustainable World. Feel free to come say hi if you see me around!

Yohann

Yohann "Hemorrhage" Rurange

Vice President
Geological Engineering '21, Class of 2017
I’m currently in my first 4th year in GEO (Woo 6 year degree!) I recently was on co-op for 16 months, which gave me the opportunity to skip the year of online school. I am the Haus manager for SPD which keeps me busy maintaining our aging haus (Hey, its got a lot of character). You can generally find me watching what some people would call “bad drama shows” in the living room or playing videogames. I also enjoy skiing and rides on my motorcycle when the weather isn’t doing its typical Vancouver thing.

Liam

Liam "Horseboy" Hinderks

Secretary, Expansion Chair, Assistant Historian
Materials Engineering '25, Class of 2021
I'm Horseboy Hinderks, everyone's second favourite 2nd year Materials Engineering student. When not dealing with classes, you'll often find me dreaming about purchasing a $1675 telescope stand, and spend even more time complaining about the number of cloudy days. Swing by the haus if you want to know why a telescope stand is so expensive, or learn other astronomy/astrophotography facts.

Hello, my name is Gage and I am in my 3rd year of Geological Engineering at UBC. I’m from a small town in the Rockies, which is one of the main reasons I am interested in rocks. When I have free time I enjoy running, hiking, and skiing.

Hi, my name is Zane (aka Lil' Zane) and I’m in my first year of Materials Engineering (second year at UBC). In my free time I like to play board games and trading card games. I’ll play just about any of them but I always find myself coming back to Magic the Gathering, and more recently Hearthstone. As the only member of SPD who is not yet 19 I am required to say that I am a good law abiding citizen who wouldn’t touch a drop of ethanol.

I'm also the guy in charge of this website, so if anything is out of date it's probably my fault 😦 and I'd appreciate if you reached out to let me know!

Anav

Anav "Slugger" Chopra

Alumni Relations, New Membership Educator, Academic Chair, Guide
Electrical Engineering '23, Class of 2019
Hello and welcome! My name is Anav and I am currently working at Loop Energy as an Electrical Engineering Co-op, slated to graduate in 2023 (screw you COVID). Originally from India, I moved to Vancouver in 2017 for university and have been very happy with that decision. Currently the Co-Propaganda officer at SPD, my fatal flaw is that I cannot focus on one thing for long periods of time with my current obsession being operating systems and hardware security. If you ever want to chat about any of these or ‘trusting the natural recursion’ I’d be happy to tell you how much I hate that phrase and how bootstrapping makes me want to pull my hair out. But on a lighter note, I enjoy playing the guitar and listening to music, you’ll often find me blasting various Spotify playlists in the Champagne Room at Haus.

CK

Christian "Jeeves" Kyle

Historian
Geological Engineering '23, Class of 2018
My name is Christian Kyle, but it’d be weird if you called me anything other than CK. I'm a 4th Year Geological Engineer so hit me up if you're down to talk rocks. My hobbies include looking into UBC Engineering history, drinking, watching terrible movies, drinking, playing sports, drinking, discovering new and obscure music, and drinking. For reasons I haven't quite figured out yet (probably nothing better to do) I’ve found myself having sold my soul to the EUS, becoming the current VP Spirit which puts me in charge of all the degeneracy the UBC Engineers are known for so let me know if you have a good idea for an Eng prank or want your ear talked off about random EUS garbage. If you're interested in ΣΦΔ, the EUS, or just wanna hang feel free to reach out!

Cameron

Cameron "Oog" Fletcher

Charity
Electrical Engineering '25, Class of 2021
Yo! My name is Cameron and I’m in my second year of Electrical Engineering, studying the Biomedical Option. Besides school, I enjoy hiking, browsing Wikipedia, eating boxed mac and cheese, and discovering new music ranging anywhere from J-pop to lute concertos. If any of these things interest you, or if you just want to send me a meme, feel free to message me! My Discord is Cameron#7011.

Diego

Mechanical Engineering '25, Class of 2021
Hey, my name's Diego, and I'm a 2nd year Mech. I've lived in North Vancouver a long time and think mountains are the peak of fulfillment. I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, driving, and music. My favourite genres are punk rock and jazz, but I'm always open to recommendations. When I'm not in class, you can probably find me in the ESC, the VOC clubroom, or Haus. If you see me, feel free to say hi, share some cool hikes or songs, or just hang around, it'll be a good time.

My names Ronald, call me Ron, Mo or whatever you can think of. I’m into sharp pointy things made of metal, namely classical and medieval history and folding knives, as well as the history associated with the former. I should have gone into history you say? Ha! Well… if it weren't for Grand Blue I might very well have.
