How did you find derby?: "I went to watch a bout at Dorton in November 2013! I don't remember how I found out about it, but once I was there I just thought, ""Wow, this is so cool... *I* want to try."" So I just showed up at an open practice! So far, so good."

Sports Background: None, really - I played soccer and softball as a child, but mostly I was very inactive, right up until derby.

Best Fresh Meat Moment: It took me 4 or 5 tries to pass my level one assessments. But that beautiful moment when it FINALLY happened after all that hard work... so amazing.

Likes: Positivity and encouragement, hip checking your friends, beer.

Dislikes: Smelly derby pads, cold weather, giving up.

Name Inspiration: It's a reference to the movie Pacific Rim; Mako Mori is the best and I love her. (So really it's mah-ko, but I'm not bothered if you want to pronounce it like the shark. That's cool too.)

If you could have any super power, what would it be? Telekinesis!
