Our Team


Brandon Joe


Hi there, I'm Brandon Joe, a senior at Tesoro High School. My interest in computer science started as a young kid when I started creating broken games during summer camps and block programming projects on Scratch. However, this interest evolved into proficiency in several coding languages along with leadership in many stem-based organizations.

Ethan Kosaki

Vice President/Operations

Hi, I'm Ethan Kosaki. I enjoy using programming in creative ways to solve different problems. Through TreasureHacks, I want to create a community for computer science students. Treasure Hacks is a way to spread my interest in programming with other high school students.

Ethan Wang


Hello, I'm Ethan Wang. I have always been intrigued about how things work, and I enjoy creating games. My passion for computer science has allowed me to win the sponsorship award at a local hackathon, as well as land an internship at Hopscotch Technologies.

Daniel Kim

Publicity/Social Media

My name is Daniel Kim, and I have worked in various leadership positions inside and outside of my high school. As a cofounder of a volunteer organization, I worked vigorously on outreach and curriculum development, while being the vice president of Tesoro NHS allowed me to develop communication and management skills. Through Treasure Hacks, I hope to continue to disseminate the pedagogical uses of technology.
