What is your pre-game ritual? I love to just free skate, working on feeling the floor out..
What skates do you wear? I wear Luigino Q6’s with a Falcon plate.
What’s your favorite wheel brand? I really like the new Jukes
What is your favorite song to warm-up to? Anything I can jam out to, so pretty much 80’s and 90’s rink music.
What’s your favorite way to work out off-skates? I like to lift weights and ride bikes. I lift about 5 days a week.
The best piece of derby advice you’ve ever been given… Stop saying “I’m Sorry”.
The best piece of derby advice you’d like to give someone new… CROSS TRAIN! If you start early the aches and pains will be less and the joy of derby will be that much more!
Who is your derby idol? Why? I have so many, it’s hard to choose just one. I will say my teammates on the Texecutioners. They as a collective whole drive me to be the best skater I can be for myself and them.
What is the best derby bout you’ve ever watched? Why? Well, I’d love to say the Gotham verse Texas Game at the 2013 championships (it totally is if we are talking WFTDA.TV) but I was skating, not really watching it. Physically watching without skates? That has to be the Philly verse Chicago at 2013’s ECDX that came down to an overtime jam where Teflon Donna out scored the Chicago jammer. The crowd was on its feet and the energy was electric.
