Who is your favorite band/musician/group?
“Last Kind Words Blues”- Burntsienna Trio, I love trashy, ballsy blues. Or just trashy, ballsy music. Or something like the Ramsey Lewis Trio. Nothing beats “The ‘In’ Crowd.”

What is your most impressive derby injury?
I do more damage at work.

Drink of choice at a bar?
Bloody Mary. Spicy. Extra olives. It ain’t a Bloody Mary without Worcestershire sauce.

Whichever way the wind blows me. I used to like practicing hand stands and riding a unicycle. One day I will be able to do flips. I have a dream.

Other sports you have played?
Always have loved skating.

What’s your most embarrassing derby moment?
Any moment when I’m committing a foul. Forearm push-offs are the most embarrassing.

How did you get into derby?
I’m a brute and I always have been. It fits well. Instead of being a bull in a china shop, now I’m an asset.

Favorite food?
The food that I cook. Ice cream and gelato are pretty rewarding.

Favorite roller derby player?
Kamikaze Kim from Duke City, now with Rat City

Who inspires you?
People with great patience, well placed empathy and the ability to tell you, “suck it up, you big baby.”

What are you most thankful for in your life?
My health and my spirit, as well as the health and spirit of those I love.

How/why did you pick your derby name?
It came before roller derby. Who doesn’t love a Vinnie Jones character? Especially one with gold-dipped bullets for teeth.

How has roller derby impacted your life?
Too much.

What’s the hardest part of being a rollergirl?
Remembering to skate as a team no matter what.

First thing you do after a derby bout:
Eat! Who cares if you stink?!

Would you like to brag about your skates?
No. Thank you, though.

You play several positions, which one is your favorite & why?
My favorite position is pivot. I can’t help myself–I hate people in front of me. It’s how I drive.

Most memorable experience you’ve had with a fan:
I plead the fifth.
