Virginia Beach Jetties
How long have you been skating?
I started in in podunk Southern Illinois with a shiny new league in ’10. Was there for about a year then hoped over to VA on whim. This kitty tried to keep it up with derby by joining DDG, but unemployment followed by a less than ideal work schedule said otherwise. Took a few years, but got back to derby with DDG the beginning of ’13 and have been loving it!
What is your job outside of derby?
Online sales for Freedom Home & Electronics, not glamorous by any definition but it pays the bills. It also allows be to keep looking for that dream job (you know the one working with animals or in conservation). >..<
Do you have any pets/kids?
I have 3 ‘boys’, Thor the derpy but sweet, lovable muppet (he’s a middle of the road special mutt), Max who is really more dog than cat (he drools when he is happy, he can soak you), then Harrison a cuddly cat who will expose his belly for a rub (it’s a trap! Don’t do it!).
Who is your derby wife?
My wife was Original Sin when in SI but we have since gone our own ways. She is kicking butt with her league in Mississippi. I decided to remain single but recently said screw it…! So watch out ladies, I am on the prowl for a new wifey!
Who is your favorite person to hit?
Usually the one who isn’t looking. What’s more fun than hitting someone who was completing not expecting it? Anyone? mwahahaha
What made you choose roller derby?
I enjoy being active and started to hear about right before Southern Illinois Roller Girls was founded. So when they set up for their first recruitment I couldn’t pass it up. Haven’t regretted the decisions since and proved to me mum I could do it and not land in the ER 😉
What would we find you doing on a Sunday afternoon?
Usually relaxing, out cruising Ghent/Downtown , taking in the sights, sipping coffee, and generally being all around mellow (sometimes the muppet dog tags along). There is also the occasional venture for an awesome brunch in the morning. Evening is usually winding down reading or watching something of interest.
Three words the describe you?
Loyal, odd, and fiery
If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I…have….no…clue….wait! I want to meet the Doctor! Yes, THE Doctor! It was be flippn’ awesome!
If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
Travel, make sure my parents are taken care of, travel, pay off bills/student loans, travel, help out my dear friend Jay and her family, and did I mention travel? I want to see so many places and try so much food! I would also of course support cause to protect animals/wildlife/natural spaces they are to important not too.
