How did you find derby?: Summer 2012, I had to film a bout in Boone for an online newspaper I was working for. I fell in love pretty immediately. Derby looked so therapeutic. I watched one ARG practice after the bout and then bought some skates and gear that weekend. . .

Sports Background: Cross Country/Track

Best Fresh Meat Moment: When I took my first big hit in one of my fist scrimmages. I heard a big, collective "Ohh" like everybody thought I was going to the hospital. I popped back up. I felt fine and kept skating. I think that before then, other skaters thought they had to go easy on me because I was new. After that, I was more medium-rare than fresh meat. It was sort of an initiation.

Favorite Derby Memory: When Roxy Rockett started calling me Smalls instead of Junior.

Likes: Law & Order, blankets fresh from the dryer, small dogs, Vodka Tonics, funny people, Christopher George Latore Wallace.

Dislikes: East Coast/West Coast hip hop feuding. Chill, ya'll.

Derby Heroes: All the Bootleggers!

Name Inspiration: It's partially inspired by Smalls from the movie The Sandlot. "You're killing me, Smalls."

Food Before a Bout: I'll usually shotgun a pizza or two.

If you could have any super power, what would it be? Whatever you call what Mystique from X-Men has.
