Eli loves to rock climb, listen to music, slackline, and write poetry. Academics-wise, he likes math, environmental studies, and english. Eli’s difficult youth inspired the name of America’s favorite punk pop band, Bowling For Soup. Their song ‘BFFF’ was actually written about Eli because of his devoted fanship. His poem “My Only Friends Have Spiky 90s Hair” is tattooed on the back of each band member. In his spare time, Eli founded new religion that combines principles of scientology and hinduism.
