MAX CASUALTIES #73
Steak, air conditioning, musical theatre, road trips, tie dying, weird music videos, cotton candy, olives, Tilda Swinton.
Driving over long bridges, finding nail clippings where they shouldn’t be, snakes, beans, making lists.
What inspired you to join Dutchland?
I always wanted to try roller derby but I was super intimidated to try the sport until I met a coach from Dutchland. They were extremely supportive and loved the community that the league provides. This is genuinely one of the most fun things I’ve ever been a part of.
What are you most excited for with DDR?
Meeting awesome people and skating in bouts.
What are you most nervous for?
I don’t want to foul out of a bout.
What do you do outside of roller derby?
I’m a logistics coordinator by day. I have a few hobbies… stand up comedy, pottery, Magic the Gathering, spontaneous cooking projects. I like to keep busy.
How long have you known how to skate?
I’ve been skating my whole life, but it was on rollerblades. So it was a bit of an adjustment to be comfortable in skates, but the coaches are very thorough.
What is your favorite song to work out to?
I love working out to the soundtrack of Into the Woods. Don’t worry about it.
Where is your favorite place to visit?
I love the beach. I have a yearly tradition where I visit Thomas the Tank Engine in Strasburg (no I don’t have children, why do you ask?)
Where do you hope to be with Dutchland by this time next year?
Still skating, hopefully improving my hip checks.
