What makes you hardcore derby? Once I skated from the Shire to Mordor to destroy some ring that my buddy Frodo gave me.

What makes you a classy dame? I read classic literature, wear pearls, and drink tea out of fancy tea cups. I also enjoy a good Audrey Hepburn film.

What is your job/career outside of derby? I control quality.

Do you have any pets? I have a beagle/basset dog named Dobby. She’s pretty sure that she’s the center of the universe.

Who is your Derby Wife? The Big Bangarang

Who is your biggest inspiration? B-One Bomber! She works diligently and faithfully to better herself and her team. Her quiet leadership is what keeps me going on the days that I am most frustrated!

What is your life motto? “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” -J.R.R. Tolkien

Do you have any secret/special talents? I draw excellent cats, and I’m not trying to brag or anything, but I do a fantastic stingray impression. I’m also a pro at drawing my feelings, creeping, and mooching.

What has been your favorite derby moment so far? Derby is such an incredible experience overall. I can no more choose a favorite moment than a favorite star in the sky.

What are 3 words to describe you? Small but scrappy.

What is the one thing you can’t live without? Lunch.

What is your favorite food? Food is my favorite. Just don’t give me stewed tomatoes, that junk is nasty.

What is your favorite movie? “Number of times watched: Elf; Most quoted: Mean Girls; Most inappropriately quoted: Hunger Games; Most inspirational for Derby: Lord of the Rings”

Who is your Derby Big Sister? B-One Bomber, KamiKashi
