Shalmali Bane


Shalmali's high school awarded her the superlative "Most Awkward" and her freshmen dorm named her "The Life of the Party". She stumbles along that thin line everyday. She still dreams of running away and joining the circus.

"Two balloons: the story of two balloons and a small bear"
When I separate a hand, where does you fly to?

The end.

(Unknown whether this was found on a Japanese notebook or in Alex's subconscious)

Sophie Carter-Kahn


Sophie is not a girl, not yet a woman. She wants the world; she wants the whole world! She wants to wrap it all up in her pocket – it’s her bar of chocolate. She so international, the way -- the way she get it on the floor.

Will Cox


The word 'biography' most likely derives from the Greek words 'bios' and 'graphia'. The latter refers to a kind of writing, and is often translated as either 'record' or 'account'. The former means 'life', but in a particular sense -- it refers not to the fact of life, that is, that one is alive at all (this would be the Greek word 'zoe'), but rather to the specific form of life appropriate to a particular person (such as a politician or housebuilder). To write a biography, then, is to give a written account of one's form of life; to write one's life.

Will's favorite word is 'rumpus'.

Jessia Hoffman


Jessia sincerely believes that improv = life. She is happiest when playing on stage and finds an excuse to bring improv up in every conversation. With anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Jessia is absolutely thrilled to follow in her former coach's footsteps as a SImp (I see you, Lisa!)

Ben Holston


Ben spent two years on the varsity swim team before joining SImps in the Spring of 2013. In his spare time, he chairs the Undergraduate Senate, so shoot him an email if you want to talk about student government, or pandas, or really anything. Ben is from Denver, Colorado, so he loves the outdoors and eating wholesome granola. He is super excited to be a SImp!!

Louis McWilliams


Louis doesn't really enjoy talking about himself about the third person. He thinks it's kind of weird. That being said, he likes Italian food. Though he is reminded of the Groucho Marx quote "I don't want to belong to any club that would have me as a member," he feels that doesn't apply in this case. He is excited for this opportunity to improvise.

Jenny Pegg


Jenny (L) is the SImps' first two-dimensional player. Despite her spatial limitations and lack of appreciation for vanishing-point geometry, Jenny enjoys many of the same activities as normal boys and girls-- things like holograms, orienteering, making facial expressions, and stacking blocks. Also dioramas, solving equations of three or more variables, and marksmanship practice with friends.

After graduation she plans to become a structural engineer.

She would like to thank Georges Braque for teaching a girl to dream.

Chris Young


Chris always wanted to eat a piece of his mother's piano but his appetite couldn't handle his musical...ity. So, he opted to explore the SImps where he learned love.
