When your not playing Hockey what do you play? I try to play a bit of Touch footy over summer to keep fit. 
How many uni games have you attended? 5 as a student, once as a journalist.
What got you hooked on uni games? What's better than going away for a week with mates playing the sport you love. 
What is your goal for EUG this year: I'd like for my Hockey team to medal (finally) and make sure all the new boys have the best week.
Which Team are you a Die Hard fan of? North Queensland Cowboys, I have never actually been to Townsville but I have supported them forever.           When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? I'm not too sure what specifically I wanted to be, but I always wanted to build and make things. Meccano & K'Nex pretty much summed up my childhood.
