In my spare time (whenever that may be) I am a RUGBY enthusiast and a referee in the New England Rugby Football Union and the USARRA. Highlights of my career include: USA Under-20 vs. Boston Irish Wolfhounds Super League (2007); South American 7's (2007); Canada Women A vs. USA Women A (2003); Men's National Championship Semi Final and Consolation (2003); Men's National Club Sevens Championships (2002); USA Super League (2000-03); National All-Star Championship (1999-2002); Collegiate All-Star Final (2002); The Northeast Men's Division I Club Final (2002); Men's Collegiate Div 1 Northeast Final . I was also fortunate enough to have gone on exchange to Gloucestershire, England in March 1999, and to have refereed with the Buenos Aires Referees Society while doing research in Argentina in 2000-2001 and with the Santiago and Chilean Refrees Society while doing research in Chile in 2006-2007.
