Curling Club Officers 2013-2014

Andrea Dubin      Co-President - Andrea Dubin

Andrea likes to curl

Greg Dooley      Co-President - Greg Dooley

Greg is a grad student in the physics department who tries to incrementally advance knowledge of dark matter through studying simulations of the universe. After a decade of wanting to try curling, he finally had the chance with MIT in 2011. Thanks to veteran curlers Dave and Phil, he has learned much about the sport and is preparing to be more competitive for the 2013-2014 year. Beyond curling, he likes to play just about any sport available and is thus an avid fan of MIT intramurals.

Philip Nadeau      Treasurer - Phillip Nadeau

Phillip is a Canadian graduate student in Electrical Engineering at MIT. He twice competed in the USA College National Curling Championships, with a Gold Medal win for MIT in Chicago in 2011 as vice for skip Dave Tax, and Bronze in Duluth in 2013 as skip himself. While many young Canadians looked to great NHL-ers like Wayne Gretzky for inspiration, yet others, like Phillip, were aspiring curlers hoping to one day become the next Brier Champion. Growing up and moving to the USA for graduate school, he thought his curling days were surely numbered, but to his amazement, he found a strong and growing curling culture in the Boston/New England area. As curling has grown in popularity with its inclusion as an Olympic Winter Sport, he enjoys sharing his passion for this life-long game with others. See you out on the ice eh!

David Tax      Officer Emeritus - David Tax

David is a graduate student in Electrical Engineering. He has curled for a number of years out of the Mayflower Curling Club in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, where he (supposedly) lead teams to victory several nights a week. David has skipped the MIT team at the college curling national championship the last 2 years, taking the blame for their 0-3 finish 2 years ago and naturally receiving no credit for the 2-1 effort this past year. Victory has been promissed in 2011. Aside from curling, like any true Canadian, his passion is hockey. David has developed into an avid Bruins fan since his arrival in Boston and can be found at most home games... that is when he's not actually out playing hockey or curling. When the ice melts, David resorts to playing pretentious sports like golf and tennis.
