What’s the story behind your name?
I was never good at giving myself nicknames, I got this one last year and it stuck. Also, I used to watch a lot of pokemon as a kid.

When did you join derby and why?
Back in September 2011, cause the something I was missing in my life was derby!

Why do you keep playing?
I love the game, I love the spirit and I love clocking people when they least expect it.

What’s your most memorable derby moment?
Screaming my lungs out at our season opener (and my first official home game in 2012) during our last jam.

What’s your derby goal or dream?
On the small scale, to make my favourite position Jammer. On the larger scale, to play and win an away game in the States!
