Personal: Started inline skating in 1996 but didn't touch the ice until 2010...Started speed skating because his parents took him and his four siblings to the rink so often that he saw the speed team and said to his dad "I want to do that."...Participated in Track & Field and Cross Country when he was younger...Is a fan of all Philadelphia sport teams: Eagles (NFL), Phillies (MLB) & 76ers (NBA)...Has two dogs named Splinter and Charlie...Works full-time at Target as a store manager...Favorite quote: "My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure." –Abraham Lincoln...Favorite place speed skating has taken him: For inline - Colombia because of the atmosphere...for ice - Korea because there is a lot of history and great food...Favorite food: Philly Cheese Steak
