Joe Seidler (US) – Overall Internet Project Manager

I have never played Ultimate. But when our son began playing at U.C. Santa Barbara in 1992, we went to a few tournaments and were hooked. We attended dozens and dozens of college and club tournaments traveling around the US and World to watch our son’s teams. I became a USA Ultimate (previously the UPA) board member from 2002-2004 (first non-player ever). In 2005 I published the first book on the history of the sport, “ULTIMATE — The First Four Decades”. I met David Barkan when my son began playing on the Matza Balls team in the SF Bay Area that David founded, and I have proudly supported David’s Ultimate Peace efforts ever since. I am an Internet Marketing consultant. I live in San Francisco with my wife, and our sons and 3 grandchildren also live in the SF Bay Area.

Rachael Cerrotti (US) – Video Leader

Rachael is new to the sport of Ultimate, but has very quickly fallen in love with the community. She was drawn to Ultimate Peace by her combined interest of photojournalism and Middle Eastern culture. Rachael spent her time at Ultimate Peace camp with two cameras around her shoulders, eagerly documenting the truly incredible work that this organization does. The family-like atmosphere at camp made her feel at home with the diverse group of staff members, coaches and campers. Since returning back to her home in Boston, Rachael has been working with the organization as their development and media coordinator.
