Randy was born and raised in Southern California. He recently graduated from Purdue University with his BS in Chemical Engineering, and MS in Engineering Management. He joined SASE Purdue as the treasurer, moving on to serve as a professional liaison, and finally as president. His favorite cuisine: Taiwanese!
"I just graduated 2015 with my ChE, and will be graduating in about a month with my master's degree. A bit more about me: I like to watch cooking shows, read cooking books and blogs, try new food and drinks, etc. I like to play tennis and go swimming, and would always pick "too hot" over "too cold." This past year, I've been mainly focused on school and my role with Purdue's Residential Life as the Staff Resident, supervising RAs (Resident Assistants)."

Victor is a recent graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign with a Bachelor of Science in Material Science Engineering. Currently, he is a Failure Analysis Engineer at Intel in Hillsboro, Oregon. In the future, Victor hopes to continue his education pursuing a PhD in Materials Science Engineering. Victor has been involved with SASE since late 2014 initially as head of the Fundraising Committee for the Midwest Regional Conference, followed by a heavily involved year as the Vice President Internal of the chapter. As regional coordinator, Victor has several goals in mind for the SASE Midwest region. Amongst his top goals is to further build SASE as a platform to develop effective leaders, establish stronger connections between chapters and a commitment to making a positive experience for anyone involved with SASE. He recognizes the challenge this poses but is excited for the opportunity to work with a wonderful team of SASE leaders to help recognize his goals. Victors when asked about his hobbies stated that the question isn’t fair since there are too many to choose from. After much friendly discussion he eventually stated some of his top hobbies which include listening to music (pretty much any genre other than country), playing video games (primarily Dota 2 and Hearthstone with occasional others sprinkled in) and learning (which is odd to hear as a hobby but Wikipedia considers it one).
