Hello! We are the Charge Forward Crew, or "ChargeCrew" for short. Here you can learn a little bit about each of us, what we do, and why we're here!
Howdy! I'm Caleb Matthews: Amateur Hammered Dulcimer Player, Sesquipedalianist (person who uses big words), and Founder and President of Charge Forward.
I have always had a passion for computers and, after spending two years researching Explainable Artificial Intelligence at Oregon State University, I found that I had a knack for them as well.
Since then I've sought to provide better access to technology for students and, to achieve that goal, I founded Charge Forward.
Hello! My name is Micah Matthews. I am a high school Sophomore, and hardware developer at Charge Forward.
I'm a student athlete and musician who enjoys playing disc golf. Growing up, I was never a person for working on technology, but puzzles fascinated me. To my surprise, building computers from scratch is a very similar process (with just a few more wires!) and I've loved working on them since then.
This is how I choose to help my community.
Hi! I'm Cody Hansen, Organizational Manager for Charge Forward.
I'm a senior at Philomath High School and (thanks to my parents and their careers) I have been involved in many projects similar to Charge Forward, such as fundraisers and charity events.
I believe this organization has the potential to make a lasting difference in our community.
Hey! My name is Dristi Patel, and I manage product design at Charge Forward.
I'm a sophomore in high school and I am involved in student government and the robotics team.
I believe that Charge Forward is a unique organization that helps students in our community and the Earth as well. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a member of Charge Forward. I plan to learn more about computers to further address one of the biggest problems the education system faces today.
Well howdy! My name is Grant Hellesto, an avid cross-country runner, and one of the videographers and graphic designers here at Charge Forward Incorporated.
I joined this project because I am passionate about community, and bringing people, especially my peers, together.
Hey, what's up everybody? My name is Caleb Shaw, and I'm a video content creator both in my personal hobbies, and here with the #ChargeCrew.
I make videos because I love to share good news and personally, I think Charge Forward is wildly good news for students and families alike. Feel free to stop by YouTube and see my channel! (It's a wonderful place to find more drone shots like our intro video!)
