Hey! My name’s Andrew Cargill and I’m a Senior here at Bronxville. Ever since I was a little kid, technology has always been a passion of mine. I used to spend my free time making videos and playing on the computer. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve tried to find ways to pursue my love for technology. I decided to join the student help desk going into Junior year in hopes to be able to learn and apply my knowledge and have fun in the process. After having taken Mr. Ashley’s introduction to computer science class sophomore year, I knew this was a topic I would love to explore further in the future. I hope I can be an integral part of the team and look forward to the rest of the year.
Hi. I am Kenny Taylor, a Senior. I am looking forward to another year as part of the helpdesk. IT is a fun experience, and comes easily to me, having helped family members and friends when “the internet isn’t working.” I am interested in other aspects of technology, including co-running a programming club, and being blamed for a recent physics assignment involving programming on a ti-84 calculator (post-traumatic syntax disorders aside, at least one person learned something). I took AP Computer Science last year, and plan on continuing my studies in college along the same thread.
Hello! My name is YiFei Wu, and I am a Senior in Bronxville High school. The reason why I want to participate in the Student Help desk is that I am really interested in technology and help teachers or students in the classroom with some tech issues. This is my second year in the Student Help Desk, hope I can learn as much as I can. That’s the purpose for being a part of the student help desk. I am looking forward to having a great second year in SHD~
Hello, my names is Zixi Chen, and I am a senior at Bronxville High School. I have just started to learn about coding and computer science in Web Design class last year. It was a very interesting class, and I enjoyed coding more than I expected to. I decided to join student help desk this year mainly because of that class. Helping other people with technological problems was always my job at home, so I believe I should learn more about technology so I can do my best and provide better help for other people. I am very happy to be a part of the help desk.

Hey there, my name is Caroline Paulson. I’m a senior at the Bronxville High school and I have been a member of Student Help Desk for two years and I am apart of the original five students who pioneered the Student Help Desk. When I first was introduced to the Student Help Desk I figured I would give it a try without really having any idea what I was getting into. Now with my second year in the Student Help Desk, I’m pretty experienced in the works of answering tickets and other things, but I’m sure I have much more to learn.
Hi, my name is Charlie Vorbach. I am a senior at Bronxville who loves mathematics, computer programing, and experimental physics.
I have some experience in writing in C, C++, and Java as well in Python scripting, web design, network management, and Linux administration. I really enjoy programing because you can build creative and useful projects from the comfort of your laptop. I am always amazed when a simple script can leverage large public interfaces to produce otherwise impossible results.
I would like to improve my ability and knowledge of managing networked systems, writing “duct tape” scripts, and creating technological solutions to real problems. As, if not more importantly, I want to use my skills to improve the Bronxville community and communicate the technology difficulties of students and faculty to the technological professionals capable of providing solutions.
Thank you for including me in this study. I am excited to work with everyone here.
Hi there, my name is David DiMolfetta. I am a senior as well as a returning first year Help Desk member. I have an innate interest in all things pertaining to technology, but am especially focused on information security and assurance. I am currently working through an independent study which coincides with real world cyber security issues, whether it’d be information fraud or global terror networks. The course addresses both the technical and political side of the field, and I hope to gain a nice foundation in the discipline to help me start more advanced security studies as a college undergraduate.
My programming experience contains experience with Java, Python, the littlest bit of HTML, and, surprisingly, TI-Basic, the language used to program Texas Instrument calculators. Most of my ‘programming’, however, is on the business side of things, as I tend to do the project management portions of the work done in tech related projects I engage in.
On the topic of school, I have huge interests in history, physics, economics, and technology related topics. I help to run Programming Club (where most of the project management takes place), Astronomy Club, Film Club, Human Rights Coalition, and I also anchor and edit Bronco TV newscasts alongside Help Desk members Liam Siegal and Will Cioffi.
Thank you for reading! I am looking forward to a wonderful, technology-filled final year in Bronxville!
My name is Liam Siegal. I am a Senior in Bronxville High School and this is my first year with Student Help Desk. My interests range from being a runner to actively being involved with my community. I participate in numerous clubs like Social Issues Awareness and Human Rights Coalition which help to bring awareness to social issues. In addition, I volunteer my time with the One Love Foundation where I work with their social media team. Another interest of mine is filmmaking. I am part of the school’s new station where I am the lead anchor and main editor. On the side I also maintain a blog and have begun to learn how to code.
Hi, I’m Remi Laurence, a senior at BXV High School and a second year help desk member. I love skiing, tennis, and basketball though I do try to run from time to time to stay in shape. I enjoy going out with friends in my freetime and play music on the guitar and violin. I also love the outdoors so I sometimes just bike around to get some fresh air and clear my mind. Last year, help desk was an amazing experience so that is why I want to join again this year!
My name is Will Cioffi and I am a senior at Bronxville. I am one of the original five members of Student Help Desk, and I am excited for another year of innovation, service, and fun. My hobbies include squash, piano, computer troubleshooting, film making, and exploring the world around me.
