How I Got Into Skating:

Figure skating?! I remember being dressed up as a Hamburger on skates as a small child. Not sure how any of it happened actually. The wheels got put on to compensate for lack of ice time.

Best Skating Memory:

...definitely not the Hamburger show.

What do you do other than skating:

I'm the president of the Kinesiology Association of NS (KANS), I have an unhealthy obsession with campfires, and I ride my little xt250 on nice days.

Bonus:

I've never seen that Tiger King show
