Who is the person you most admire/greatest influence in your life and why:

-          My Father was a very resilient and courageous person; spending much of my time with him made me value these rare characteristics.  He fought continuously throughout his life and was never afraid to fail.  Sometimes the most courageous act is the risk of failure.  His fearless attitude towards failure distinguished and fueled his risky behavior, but in turn, highlighted his many successes.  The last years of his life taught me more than I cared to learn at the time.  It taught me how quickly life can change… that all the success, natural talent, and gifted intelligence can be taken so easily if you follow the wrong path.  I admire him for his accomplishments, and the ability to persevere no matter how grim a situation became.

List your hobbies:

- Hanging out with friends.
- Listening to audio books while driving.
- watching documentaries

What music do you listen to during training or competition?

-               EDM radio on Pandora

Favorite food before a competition:

- depends on when the competition is. If it's in the morning then I'll eat oatmeal with almonds. If it's later in the day I'll eat pasta and drink a pre-made carb shake within 30 min of racing.

Favorite movie:

-               Butterfly Effect

Most prized possession:

- my supplements (lol yes, it's that serious) and skates
