Eli Weiss, Senior Editor

Eli joined Boiling Point in his first semester as a freshman. Quickly becoming involved, he became assistant web editor in his second semester, during which he helped redesign the website and get the Boiling Point to become a SNO Distinguished Site for the first time. 

Besides web design, Eli does design and takes photographs for the Boiling Point. Outside of Boiling Point, Eli is a programmer of the Shalhevet robotics team, guitarist with the band and a grade representative to the Agenda committee.
