QuotesEdit

  • The results are something I can't control, so I can't say 'damnit, I didn't place in the top three today.' I can't control any of that. I just skate. And my goal was to show my heart, to take them on a journey with me so they can feel me.
  • I want people to be taken away to another planet when they watch me skate. I want them to be transported into a dream world.
  • Out of ugly, I think the most important thing to do in life is to make something beautiful.

  • If he doesn’t want to skate to music that’s pretty and wear a pretty costume, then go rollerblade or skateboard or do one of those extreme sports.
  • I’d love to see a 6-foot-2-tall, skinny man doing a halfpipe on figure skates.
  • There are some things I keep sacred. My middle name. Who I sleep with. And what kind of hand moisturizer I use.
