How long have you been skating?

March 2015

What is your favorite derby moment?

Playing some nice offence when the blocker doesnt see it coming is always nice.

What is your pre-bout routine? Any rituals?


What does your derby name mean?

So you know when a thunderstorm rolls in at dusk and the lightning lights up the clouds and they look huge and ominous and awesome and black and purple? And you know that it’s going to be a huge storm just by looking at it in the distance? That to me is a purple storm, and it’s something that can’t really be avoided. You wait it out inside, you wait for the chaos and wonder and power to pass. Also I have purple hair


How important is derby in your life?

Derby helped me gain something in my life that I didn’t know I was missing. I have confidence that comes from loving yourself and your strengths and accepting and loving your weaknesses and flaws. Derby gave me a safe space to discover this about myself, and I will forever be grateful.

What advice would you give to someone looking to begin their roller derby career?

DO IT! Don’t be scared, we can teach you everything you need. You can do it, even if you think you can’t. You are so much more capable and able then you even are aware of, so just try it 😀 we are nice!

Anything else we should know about you?

I work and play roller derby and absolutely nothing else. 😉
