Simon Calcavecchia

In 2002, Simon Calcavecchia, moved to Australia to follow his dream of playing rugby.  After his third game of the season, he was injured in a scrum leaving him with c5/6 quadriplegia.  Several years after the injury, Simon graduated from The Evergreen State College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts.  After graduating, he spent most of his time volunteering with preschool children which partly inspired him to write about “The Adventures of Frank and Mustard".  


Simon continues to inspire others by following his dreams and living a life of passion regardless of his disability. The stories of Frank and Mustard are based on his own experiences. They are meant to inspire children and adults to never give up.
