John was born and raised in small-town Montana. An avid outdoorsman and adventurer, he has lived in every corner of this great country! He is currently playing within Major League Rugby, America’s first and only professional rugby league. He studied Geology at Central Washington University, and following school, moved to Martha’s Vineyard as a manager at a 5-Diamond Hotel.
He then made the decision that rugby was what he wanted to pursue, and moved near New Orleans for two years after being invited by NOLA Gold. Once his tenure there was finished, he was invited by Rugby HTX Academy to continue his career! He’s loving his first time living in a big city, and can’t wait to take advantage of all the rich opportunities!
