And the fact that I liked to show off and be the center of attention really lends itself to figure skating very well.
'Thrasher' magazine's Skater of the Year is clearly my No. 1 goal. The only way I get that is skating. Other than that, I haven't set that many outrageous goals.

Punk rock and skateboarding took the 'school' out of living your life, and I related to learning as I went, doing a lot of different things that I liked, when I liked.

Years ago, I picked up figure skating. How hard could spins and jumps be, I thought? It's just applied Newtonian physics.

Although in skating you compete with other people, anyone who achieves a certain level of success is first and foremost competing against themselves.
