  Adam “Damski” Wrobel ‘19     Director    A month after finishing his cheese sandwich (pictured), Adam received the shocking news that he was lactose intolerant. Mourning the loss of pizza and ice cream, Adam turned to unconventional percussion to fill the void in his heart. He found through years of playing Sick Beats (TM) on buckets, boomwhackers, and more that the “cheese of humor tastes better than the cheese of cow.”
