VP of Engineering
Deen is a second-year member of Team 5052, and is our current VP of Engineering. Deen is an insane (no matter what she says) go-getter who doesn’t shy away from speaking with honesty. Her determination and tough attitude help keep our Engineering department from being derailed. But despite her tough exterior, she is one of the most chaotically sweet people you will ever have the pleasure of knowing, and this team couldn’t function without her 🙂
Fun Fact: She can chop your head off in over 12 different ways with a machete.

Head of Finance
Alex Massaro, our team’s current Head of Finance, has been on the team as soon as he got into high school. With his previous experience as a full-term member of the middle school’s FLL team, Alex already knew a lot about FIRST compared to his fellow freshmen members. Through his hard work, he was able to become the Head of Finance even when he first started business in his 2nd year, with his 1st year saved for software. Alex is a great person and an even better leader, so if you are ever feeling down, you can count on Alex to pick you right back up again.
Fun Fact: Alex Massaro is an Eagle Scout, so of course, he knows how to tie any knot known to man.
