Who we are

CubingUSA is run entirely by volunteers, many of whom have been involved in our community for 10 or more years.

Board of Directors

Shelley Chang has been organizing US Nationals since 2006 and has designed the CubingUSA Nationals logos. Shelley has been competing since the Caltech competitions held in 2004, delegating competitions since 2008, and is the only person who has attended every US Nationals competition to date.

Kenneth Lu joined the Nationals Organizers team in 2015. Ever since he helped to run an Autonomous Robot Design Competition in college, Kenneth has been looking for another competition to help organize. He unironically loves to do paperwork! Kenneth is a software engineer in California.
Vincent Sheu was instrumental to CubingUSA's incorporation. He began cubing in 2005 and attended his first competition in 2006. Vincent has been an organizer for Nationals since the 2011 competition and is the former president of the Berkeley Cube Club. In 2011, Vincent tied the world record for solving 2x2x2 in 0.96 seconds. In 2014, he tied the world record for 3x3x3 fewest moves with a 25.00 move average. Vincent is a lawyer in California.
Matthew Dickman began cubing early 2013 under the YouTube name, "tehcubedude" before attending his first competition that summer, World Championships 2013. Since then, he has competed in nearly 100 competitions, organizing and delegating many of the local competitions in Washington. Along with competing he also has a cube collection of nearly 900 different puzzles. His favorite events are the blindfolded events, specifically 4x4 Blindfolded. Matthew works in health insurance in Washington State.
Saransh Grover attended his first WCA competition in 2014 and was hooked by the inclusiveness and positivity in the cubing community. He started organizing competitions because there weren't any near him and was later appointed to be a Delegate in 2018. He is also a member of the WCA Marketing Team. Saransh studies Computer Science and English at Stony Brook University in New York.
James LaChance has been a Director of CubingUSA since its inception. He began cubing in 2003 and attended his first competition in 2010.

Lauren Rose has been cubing since 2017. She start out as a cubing mom, and now she is a cuber herself. Lauren is a mathematics professor at Bard College in New York.

Michael S. Rosenberg is the parent of a speed cuber and the Managing Director of McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, NJ. He was the Managing Director of La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego for nine years where his son first learned to cube in the Finance Office.
Walker Welch joined as a Director in 2018. The best part of the cubing community according to Walker is the collaboration and helpfulness cubers give to everyone, no matter what skill or speed level you are. Walker works in logistics in Minnesota.
