Greatest influence in his life is his coach, Kori Ade ... If he weren't a skater, he'd want to be a gymnast ... Hobbies include horseback riding, skiing and playing the piano ... Has a passion for acting and performing ... Biggest life-defining moment was winning the 2010 U.S. junior title ... After he's done competing, wants to travel the world ...

If he could meet any living celebrity, it would be Lea Michele because "I think she is incredibly talented."
