READ ABOUT THIS YEARS STAFF BELOW:
DIRECTOR – PARI GABRIEL
Hellorrrrrr, I’m Pari, the Director of A+E. I’m a senior in the Human Centered Design and Engineering program, the designer at Human Condition Magazine, and I do freelance design outside of my other commitments. If I could ever find enough rhythm to perform at a concert, my rider would include cheese, crackers, and some Trader Joe’s Limeade.

PROGRAM COORDINATOR – AIDAN GALASSETTI
Oi! It’s Aidan. I am a 4th year pre-med student studying bio physiology whilst concurrently occupying the Program Coordinator position on the 2018 A+E gang. I am from the holy grail of suburbs, Irvine, California, and am commonly found reminiscing over my Southern California youth as Miyazaki/Frank Ocean mashups slap nostalgically in the background. I like to do the tap dancing, the soccer ball, the movie, and the doodle. Lastly! My green room rider would include a 01, 05, and 08 micron pen + paper, grey hoodie, and headphones (no AirPods) playing Swim Good.

SENIOR MARKETING COORDINATOR – UYEN CAO
Hey, I’m Uyen! I make all the posters, social media posts, etc; everything you see regarding us/for our events and market us/our events and I LOVE IT. I spend my time hanging out with family and friends, and “studying” for my majors: Marketing and Interaction Design. If I had a green room rider, it would have a ton of mango, a ton of pineapple, cheddar ruffles, spinach dip with some fluffy french bread, and all the sparkling apple cider in the world.

JUNIOR MARKETING COORDINATOR – SABRINA ZHU
Hi hello I’m Sabrina – sophomore, Design major, and this year’s Junior Marketing Coordinator! You’ll probably find me trying to soak up the tiny amounts of Seattle sun, listening to the same 3 lofi and R&B songs on repeat, and embroidering my jeans. My green room rider would be stocked with takis, Wenatchee apples, and tofu pad kee mao.

MULTIMEDIA DESIGNER – ELLEYCE PAHANG
Hullo I’m Elleyce — a senior in Interaction Design and this year’s Multimedia Designer for A+E! I work with the marketing team to design promotional materials and capture events on camera! During my free time I love working on random creative projects, binge reading comics and watching animated films that make me cry good, wholesome tears. If I had a green room rider I would have an assortment of teas both hot and cold to calm me down as I question why I am publicly performing in the first place.
