I am a third year Robotics Engineering major and TIM minor at UCSC. I am a FRC alum (#2643) and am continuing my passion of working on large hands-on projects. My interests are in fabrication processes ranging from traditional machining to the expanding field of additive manufacturing. In Formula Slug, I assist part fabrication and coordination.

I am a second year Electrical Engineering major. I have always had a passion for literature, politics, and mechanisms of travel- be that cars, trains, airplanes, rockets. They provide our lives with freedom and agency on a scale unparalleled in human history. My dream is to help create the travel of the future; travel that is sustainable, ethical and powered by the sun.


Matthew Chai

FS-2 Design Lead

I'm a senior studying Robotics, EE, and Business Management. I optimized the budget on FS-1 and was a former FS-0 mechanical member. I used to do FRC (#4159) in high school, and am now a retired mechanical mentor for various San Francisco teams. Whenever I manage to have free time, I'm either over the hill drinking boba, or kicking it back at my computer.

Sam Ritzo

FS-1 Lead / Project Manager

I am a fifth year studying Computer Engineering with a concentration in Robotics. I enjoy designing and building complex projects involving microcontrollers and programming, such as the MIDI DJ controller I built in high school. In my spare time, I enjoy playing guitar, making origami and collecting vinyl. I manage the overall progress of the FSAE race car and help with the design.
