We've made two amazing additions to our staff with a new Systems Administrator and a new Membership Coordinator. Here's a quick introduction to our two newest staff members!
Aaron Jue comes to us from the New England Aquarium, where he gained experience working as membership coordinator, and the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, where the history of internment of Japanese citizens during WWII got him interested in civil liberties. As it turns out, Aaron's resume said nothing about the fact that he possesses an incredible talent for baking — and sculpting — unusual cakes. To bid farewell to outgoing membership director Nicole Nguyen, he crafted a cake designed to look uncannily like a New Zealand sheep's head (thus endearing himself to the cake-mad EFF staff).
We received many applications for a new Systems Administrator position, and even in this crowded field, Stuart Matthews stood out. Not only is Stu thoroughly qualified — his former job was as a Systems Administrator for IS Logistics — but Stu was already known around EFF as our "über-volunteer." Stu would work his full night shift sysadmin'ing, and then come to EFF before heading home to fold t-shirts and generally help out. Stu has a special interest in free speech, privacy and IP issues, and the requisite passion for drum and bass.
Welcome Aaron and Stuart!
