Q&A с Джеффри на сайте SOI

What is the most rewarding part of figure skating?
It makes me happy! The ability to move, skate, and entertain makes me happy; that is most rewarding.

What’s your next career move? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I still see myself involved with skating. Although it may not be through performing, it will likely be in the form of choreography. Also, I will return to University and begin preparing for a life outside of the rink.

What are the top 5 songs on your iPod?
Ball and Biscuit by The White Stripes
Dog Days are Over by Florence and the Machine
Adagio (IV Moment) from Mahler’s 9th Symphony
L:esson Learned by Ray LaMontagne
The Great Escape by Patrick Watson

What is your favourite meal to cook?
Cook? I’m a downtown Toronto bachelor and therefore do not cook.

What is your favourite Stars on Ice memory?
Skating in the Finale number with Brian Orser on his final Stars tour. Every night the energy was amazing, as he had preceded finale with “Story of my Life” to a standing ovation.

What has been your favourite country to visit and why?
This is a tough question, but I’ve spent the most time in Japan and enjoy it there. The people have always be en so proper and polite and Toyko has the energy that I love in a city.

How do you spend your time when you aren’t on the road?
Spending as much time with family and friends as possible. When they’ve had enough of me I read, watch movies, and generally just relish in being in one location for a generous amount of time.

Most memorable career moment?
Winning Worlds was definitely my most memorable career moment while competing.

If you could compete in an Olympic sport other then figure skating, what would it be and why?
Undoubtedly a summer sport (training is warmer, haha). I would probably do trampoline because who doesn’t love jumping on a trampoline?

If you hadn’t become a professional athlete, what do you think your current career would be?
I would probably be in research/development of pharmaceuticals. Not a fan of what-ifs though.

Who is your idol?
I’ve recently realized there are too many to list. Inspiration can come in so many forms.

If you could have dinner with one person, who would it be and why?
Perhaps my older self. Not to know the future, but to get some advice and wisdom (okay and maybe some winning lottery numbers)

If you could be an animal for one day, what would it be and why?
Our family dogs have always had the best lives. Eat/sleep/play/repeat. That being said, the ability to fly is hard to pass up. I’ll go with eagle.

If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life what would it be and why?
I do love chocolate, but I’m not sure I could function simply on that. I’ll go with spaghetti. Not the best for breakfast but I’m sure I’d still eat it.

А Шон сказал, что хотел бы встретиться с собой в детстве, чтобы сказать себе никогда не отказываться от своих целей.
