Ultimate frisbee is a big part of my life. I compete with the Philadelphia Spinners, a semi-professional team. Our league, Major League Ultimate, consists of 8 teams ranging from San Francisco to Boston. It is truly an incredible experience to compete in a stadium in front of fans.
Since 2003 I have spent most of my free time training for and playing Ultimate Frisbee. While at Dartmouth I competed in the Collegiate Series with the Dartmouth Pain Train including an appearance at the College Championship Tournament. I also competed in the Club Series with Chuckwagon and Ride Tide.
During the 2010 season I played for Philly AMP. We were the Midatlantic Regional Champions and we competed at the Club Championships in Sarasota, FL, finally placing 12th in the nation.
In 2011, I returned to the Open (Men's) Division, captaining the Boston Based team Garuda. Garuda finished their season with only 3 losses, 2 of which were to the National runner-up, Ironside. In 2012, I competed with the Baltimore based team Medicine Men.
I serve as the President of the board of directors for the Philadelphia Area Disc Alliance (PADA) which organizes and maintains the local leagues as well as organizing youth outreach programs which use ultimate as a medium.
Travel, Hiking, Climbing and Backpacking:
My beautiful wife, Stacey and I love to travel. We have been to Thailand, Egypt and Scotland together as well as all over the United States, from Florida to Hawaii to Seattle to Arizona to Boston and everywhere in between.
We especially like to get out of the city and enjoy the great outdoors. Whenever I travel to an area with mountains I make sure to get some hiking in.
Also, my wife Stacey Spencer Zargham is amazing. Not just because she can do this:
but also because she is a brilliant biophysicist, skilled yoga instructor and all around nice person.
