How I came to join Revolver:
Ashlin convinced me to tryout in 2014. Eli was trying out to and I thought it’d be the coolest to get to play with him again.

Favorite game or tournament moment on Revolver:
Hard to top catching the game winning goal in the 2014 WUCC finals against Sockeye. It was only my 2nd tournament with Revolver and it was a game where there was only 1 break and every possesion was precious. I caught a deep shot and ran weenie with Robbie and he found me in the back of the endzone for the game winner. I was immediately mobbed and never even got to stand up after “laying out” for the goal.

Favorite game or tournament moment outside Revolver:
2013 U23’s. Best experience of my life. So many amazing people and ultimate players in one place sharing an entirely new experience together. 

Favorite ultimate player(s) in my formative years: Mac Taylor

Favorite movie as a kid:
As a kid? Muppet Treasure Island

Pre-game ritual:
Asking Greg for eye-black

What I like to eat Saturday night of a tournament:

Something unknown about me:
I can move my eyes independently of each other like a lizard
