What is your backstory/ Origin of derby name:

I am a shit stirrer at heart, and love to play. As a boy, I was taught that hitting girls is not allowed…. as an adult, I was introduced to Roller Derby, and quickly learned that some girls love a little bit of smackin’ and teezin’…

Famous for:

Face paint

Likes:

Wild derby peeps and the crazy fun that follows us around.

Dislikes:

People that believe derby is about half naked chicks smashing each other while skating, and douchebags.

Favourite Position:

I like all positions, as long as we are having fun. Whassuuuup.

Personal Motto:

“Aaaaww Yeeeaah” And “Never Surrender…Never Give Up”

Who is your derby crush?

I am greedy and have more than one…. Suzy Hotrod (Gotham Girls), Bonnie Thunders (Gotham Girls), Kamikaze Kitten (London Rollergirls) just to name a few internationals, and also have quite a few from Adelaide Roller Derby League and Murder City Roller Girls, but too many to name.

Where will we find you at the after party?

Floating around being a cheeky Teez’.

What gets you fired up on the track?

I reckon the thing that gets me most pumped is hearing that Lead Jammer whistle sound in my favour, among a few things.

Signature move:

This thing called a cross-over. You should see it. Totes full of awesomesauce hahaahaa.

Injuries:

I grazed a nipple once. Don’t laugh, it actually hurts you know.

Skating since:

2012 after I told a close friend of mine that she skates like a boy… Turns out, I skate more like a boy, go figure, hahahaa. Also skated as a kid. Rolleeerr Discooo!!

Derby Wife?

Some guy that got down on one knee on the track and asked me the weirdest question I think I will ever hear hahahaaa… what’s his name? Dr Dinomight from the Regimental Rollers, that’s him (engaged skate-tastic crazy tart stuff)

What does derby mean to you?

Time to be sentimental. Aaaw Yeeaah!! Derby means the world to me. It’s a place where so many awesome people from all walks of life collide like a big wet derby hug of luuurv, and we all have the best fun ever. Derby Frikkin Rocks!!
