What got you interested in rugby and why did you join the Crusaders?

I got interested in rugby because when I was a kid, I saw about five minutes of a televised match and it caught my attention. It was so foreign and queer to me. I joined the Crusaders because a member of the team reached out to me on Grindr and got me interested in joining. One night I came to a practice and that's that.

What position(s) do you play?

I've played Wing, Outside and Inside Center, and at Fly-half.

How long have you played rugby?

5 months now.

What do you do for a living?

I am a waiter at a local restaurant and a student at Meramec.

What’s a fun fact about you?

I am a theatre nerd so I do a lot of theatre stuff. I also write in my spare time.

What’s your favorite thing about rugby?

That's hard for me to pin point. I love almost everything about it, but for the sake of choosing, i would say the (supposed) non-stop action.

If you are going to Bingham, what are you most excited about? 

To be a part of the amazing experience.

Overall, how has rugby affected your life?

It has given me a sport to be passionate about again, and that means the world to me.
