How long have you been skating?
Season 11 is my 3rd season
What is your favorite derby moment?
Being on the track for the last jam of Black and Blue 10, when Coco scored a bajillion points (ok, 29) to come back from a big deficit and win the bout.
What is your pre-bout routine? Any rituals?
I put my contacts in, jump around and shake it out a little bit, then gear up and tape my wristguards. After that I try go over some specific goals in my head to help convince myself I know what I’m doing!
What does your derby name mean?
I’m named after Ghostface Killah of the Wu Tang Clan. My number is the area code for Staten Island, which is where Wu Tang is from.
How important is derby in your life?
It’s what keeps me (mostly) sane
What advice would you give to someone looking to begin their roller derby career?
Have fun! You will probably fall a lot. Sometimes it will hurt, but most of the time it’ll just be funny! I could barely skate when I started and I fell (and still fall) a ton. Being able to laugh at myself kept me from getting discouraged.
Anything else we should know about you?
Valerian steel is my derby wife. She’s the best 😉
