MEET THE TEAM

Lead Directors

 
Samantha Magtoto  Director  I joined, and stayed, with Camp PolyHacks because it has continually given me the opportunity to explore my personal leadership style and be a passionate problem-solver, but more importantly, it has given me a platform where I believe I can create something meaningful!  Camp PolyHacks is my passion project! I also try to get involved with the Cal Poly Accounting Club, the Pilipino Cultural Exchange Club, and Becker CPA.   LinkedIn

Brad Iglesia  Director  Despite planning on retiring my career as a hackathon organizer, I realized that I wanted to continue to inspire people of all majors to be able to create wonderful projects that they are not only proud of, but also will change the world.  I am an amateur parkour athlete, and I meet with a group of fantastic people to train around campus and help each other grow.   LinkedIn

Design & Tech

 
Amber Chiang  Director  I love Camp PolyHack's message and wanted to contribute to this incredible organization. The experiences and lessons that I will gain from my time here will be valuable in helping me pursue a career in product design.  Besides being the Design and Tech Director at Camp PolyHacks, I'm also the Co-President of AIGA Cal Poly and have worked at Cal Poly Athletics as their Graphic Design intern for two years now! In my free time, I love to read more about human-centered design and also enjoy pursuing a hobby in photography.   LinkedIn

Victoria Plumb  Organizer  I joined the CPH team because I loved being a camper my freshman year. It was such a great learn by doing experience outside the classroom and a great way to meet new people at Cal Poly. I did SLO Hacks my sophomore year. After being a part of two hackathons, I wanted to return to CPH and use my design experience to make CPH the best experience possible.  I am a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. I work at the Cal Poly Robert E. Kennedy Library. I am also a part of Rose Float and Bookclub.   LinkedIn

Kedwin Chen  Organizer  I joined Camp PolyHacks after participating in one of their hackathons—I had a wonderful time and wanted to use my skills to give back and help bring the experience I had to other hackers.  I am a part of the following clubs: Cal Poly Fencing (CPFC), White Hat, Cal Poly Linux Users Group (CPLUG), Northrop Grumman Collaboration Project (NGCP). In my free time (what free time?) I like to learn more about computer and network security (physical (e.g., locks and lockpicking) hardware, firmware, software, and network security, social engineering, and more).   LinkedIn

On the side, I dabble in photography and love food!   LinkedIn

Yuka Tanaka  Organizer  I joined because I was inspired by the idea of how CPH offers the hackers an experience to tackle a bigger issue in the world while working in an interdisciplinary environment. I wanted to be part of creating this experience with fresh new people in my life. Also, it was time for me to enhance my soft skills.  Honestly...I'm at dexter building all the time trying to meet project deadlines with the help of too much caffeine. I spend waay too much money on Starbucks they should consider sponsoring me.
