I haven't heard from him in awhile. I'm assuming he isn't skating anymore, at least competitively - right? Does anyone know if he's doing shows or what he's up to?

No, he is not skating anymore. He moved away from Michigan earlier this year.

We saw him coaching at the Ann Arbor Springtime Invitational this past May. Best of luck to him in his future endeavors!

I spoke with him this past summer. He is healthy and happy. Done with skating himself, and looking forward to a new chapter in his life.

^^ That's good to hear. Was it injuries that slowed him down and lessened his opportunities, or other factors (such as deep senior Nationals field)?

As I recall, it was a back injury that caused Halverson to miss the 2010-2011 season and it prevented him from ever getting back into competitive shape after that.

^^ Oh, yes, I seem to recall vaguely he was injured. I'm sorry to hear that the injury ended his promising career competing as an eligible skater. But it's good to know that he's now healthy and happy, and still involved in skating.

I really enjoyed watching Eliot's expressive performance to a jazzy, instrumental version of "An Englishman in New York" - video link is posted in the GSD thread for last month's ITNY show: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?87670-Young-Artists-Showcase-helps-aspiring-choreographers-quot-Quest-for-Creativity-quot-videos&p=3908912&viewfull=1#post3908912
