If the glove don’t fit, you must get hit.
Before joining Brewcity Bruisers, I trained one year with the Milwaukee Blitzdkrieg, Milwaukee’s Men’s Roller Derby League. It was a great experience with a great group of athletes.
My non-skating athletic experience includes completing a sprint triathlon in 2012, placing in a college rock climbing contest, and competing in track and downhill skiing in high school.

Worst Derby Injury
In 2013 I shattered my finger. I had a spiral butterfly fracture in my proximal phalange, which is a fancy way of saying my finger bone was in little tiny pieces. One plate, six screws, and seven months of physical therapy later, it’s mostly back to normal.
Last May I suffered a bad concussion in the last game of the season. I had trouble retrieving words for two weeks after (thus making it the first time in history that i was at a loss for words). Derby is a full contact sport, and injuries happen, but taking care you your brain is very important!
Proudest Derby Moment
I’m proud of the progress I’ve made throughout my derby career, both athletically and as a member of my team. Derby is demanding both mentally and physically, and I’m proud of the hard work I put in to keep my body in good shape, and the things I’ve learned to do with it.
I’m also proud of the way my teammates and i work together on the track to be a cohesive unit, and I love my place on the Crazy Eights!
