Meet the Staff

2019-2020 Staff

Tiffany Madruga '20

I'm a Computer Science and Media Studies double major. I love doing layout for The Muddraker and updating the Instagram. In my free time I love painting, singing in choir, taking photos, and spending way too much time on Netflix and other social media.

Rachel Schibler '20

I’m a Math-Comp-Bio major. In my free time I like eating fruit, hiking with other people’s dogs, and editing The Muddraker. My only real talents are burping, making my brothers laugh, and doing handstands in weird places.

Hannah Larson '20

I am an MCB and Theater double major. Outside of classwork I am a proud fish and plant mama, lover of country music, avid book collector, and enthusiastic flannel wearer. On top of all of that, I love organizing spreadsheets and editing articles!

William La '22
Editorial Board Member, Chief of Design

I’m a computer science major interested in all things design! In my free time I enjoy awkwardly dancing to 2000s R&B/hip-hop and staring at aesthetically pleasing fonts. I hate the fact that this description is in Times New Roman. Feel free to message me for font or music recommendations!

Kyle Grace '21
Editorial Board Member, Chief of Photography

I'm studying computer science and economics, I love doing photography and taking part in student government in my free time!

Becca Blyn '22
Editorial Board Member, Copy Editor

I’m a (rare) biology major planning to concentrate in music or political science. I also really enjoy student journalism and am so excited to be on the editorial board of the Muddraker! If you ever want to chat about politics, biology, grammar, or anything to do with Sarah J. Maas books, come find me!

Stephanie Blankley '20
Copy Editor
Mary Celestin '21
Music Editor

In my free time, I run sprints for CMS, do work with ASCE, play my viola, write, read, and listen all sorts of mu-
sic--especially prolific rap music that makes you want to throw something. Don’t ask me why it’s necessary to my life. It just is.

Zoe Ryan '20
Writer & Layout Editor

When I’m not working on problem sets and getting tutored, I enjoy overeating, playing lacrosse, making my friends go on hikes, petting other people’s dogs, and talking about Colorado!

Domenico Ottolia '22

I’m an engineering major that loves playing piano, exploring outdoors, and practicing Aikido. If I’m not taking photographs for The Muddraker, I’m usually climbing things that I probably shouldn’t be.

Max Maleno '20
Writer & Photographer

I could live solely (but not healthily) off of sushi, ice cream, and M&M’s. I also love taking photos, being outdoors, the stars, and being with my friends. Get off campus; explore!

Priyanka Agarwal '20

I love doing photography, and am excited I get to do photography for The Muddraker. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, singing, and dancing.

Sydney Wallace '20

In my free time, I write for The Muddraker and enjoy juggling actual objects as well as my schedule. I study CS-Math, but am really enjoying my history class on journalism and learning about muckraking and the history of this newspaper.

Jonah Cartwright '20

I am an investigative journalist and sports writer for The Muddraker. I enjoy participating in CMS football and the Claremont College’s rugby team. To procrastinate, I eat all the cookies in the Hoch, read sci-fi novels, and annoy the rest of The Muddraker staff.

Aom Pongpiriyakarn '20
Layout Editor & Photographer

I love meeting new people, eating spicy food, and pulling all-nighters. I take every opportunity I get to travel.

Skylar Gering '22
Layout Editor & Photographer

I am planning on being a math-comp-bio major. I am passionate about environmental conservation and am the ASHMC Sustainability Director this year. In my free time, I love talking about random topics with the Effective Altruists club, swimming, and hanging out with my friends.

Sophia Cheng '21

I am passionate about classical music and theatre. I sometimes sing too loud in the shower. I enjoy volunteering with Red Cross, writing, playing tennis, and meditating.
