Onoga17 is a current student at UC Santa Barbara. He is a former Division C competitor at Mountain View High School (California) from 2013-2017. He now serves as a part-time Astronomy mentor for his old team and is also part of the Santa Barbara Science Olympiad Regional committee. Although his Science Olympiad accomplishments are mediocre at best, he has no issue proclaiming them for all to hear, much to the annoyance of his current colleagues.

He could be considered one of the founding members of the current Mountain View High School program and was one of the two freshman members on the school's original 15 team roster who competed all four years of high school. As a result, he remains (perhaps too) attached to his old team and is still very much invested in their success.
