Meet Your Program Board


AS Program Board is a student-operated non-profit organization funded by lock-in fees which aims to coordinate fun and educational events for the UC Santa Barbara community. Appointed student board members gain hands-on experience in planning, booking, advertising, and running various events ranging from intimate open mics to 10,000 capacity festivals.

Brandon Pineira
Special Events Coordinator
Brandon Pineira manned trash duty at Extravaganza in the spring of 2013 and has since become the Coordinator for UCSB’s large-scale student run concerts and special events. Though nobody has ever actually seen him in real life, it is said that he lives in the deepest, darkest corner of the ASPB office. Rumor has it, if you leave hot black coffee outside of the office late at night, it will disappear as soon as you look away. When Brandon isn’t working on campus events, he is playing guitar, collecting vinyl, writing, seeing a live show, or enjoying a cold microbrew. If you see him around be sure to say hello!
Chrystal Anderson
Special Events Assistant
Chrystal is a 3rd year Communication major with a minor in professional writing. She is from the Westside of Los Angeles and will rep it hard. Scandal enthusiast and baked goods connoisseur, Chrystal has a deep love for the eccentric and artistic. She is very involved in campus organizations, but being on AS Program Board is definitely on the top of her list. You can find her dancing hard in Black Reign, tearing up every floor. She’s super friendly, always offering a smile (:
Christina Chiocchi
Cultural Events Coordinator
Christina is a second year Communication major who, apart from having a last name that no one can pronounce, enjoys old school hip hop and any form of art. You can find her around IV riding her Fixie, buying Vinyl records, shopping at Urban Outfitters, and rocking that general sense of entitlement that comes with being a Millennial. Christina decided to organize events for ASPB in order to finally prove to everyone that she did in fact like it before it was cool… Christina is often accused of being a “hipster.”

Jared Payzant
Production Assistant
Jared is currently a third-year film and media student. Jared can be observed in many different locations around the campus, but most commonly at concerts and house shows. Jared plays drums for the I.V. band, Sun Daes, and will shamelessly promote them through outlets such as this. He is hoping to work on many projects this year in film and music. You will be able to recognize him by the large outdated video cameras mounted on his shoulder.
Wes Clark
Event Safety Coordinator
Wes is both a political scientist and business boy, though he hopes one day to become a business man. Before joining the program board, he was just an aimless ball of gas traveling among the UCSB stars. But now, he has found his passion; ensuring that the Program Board’s events are of superlative safety. Praise be to Poker Night, Taco Tuesday, and Katy Perry concerts.
Kyle Didier
Event Safety Assistant
Moonlit dinners, any movie with Meg Ryan, and Kale.

Sarah Cragin
Publicity Coordinator
Sarah is a second year Film and Media Studies major. In her spare time she enjoys frolicking through meadows and petting small furry animals. She can often be found buried under huge blankets binge watching Netflix or chillin Oceanside while drinking a smoothie through a bendy straw. She loves kickin it with the homies and is all about the good times and good vibes!
