Reach for the moon and if you miss, at least you'll land amongst the stars" ... lists his former club and varsity teammate, Gabby Signorelli, as having the most influence on his diving career for pushing him to pursue the sport given his background in gymnastics, despite others who told him he was too old to get into a sport of this complexity.
