Introducing Puck!

Hello, there. I am Puck. I am a coffee and beer-swilling, bike-riding, vegan-food-eating, animal-loving, cupcake-hating nerd who loves strategic board games, street photography, urban planning, and long walks on the beach. The beach of lake Michigan, that is, because Chicago is awesome and we don't need a stinkin' ocean. Most importantly, I am a brand new member of The Chicago Outfit!

I am also a huge derby geek. I used to think sports fans were from another planet. A planet where there wasn't quite enough oxygen. But then I discovered roller derby and realized I was wrong, and probably also a judgmental jerk.  I first encountered derby seven years ago and have been hooked ever since. I have traveled to Austin, Philly, Portland, and countless places in-between to watch games and tournaments, and have excitedly watched in amazement as this sport has grown in popularity and skill.  Each year I am amazed by the huge number of new leagues starting up all over the world as well as the new levels of athleticism shown by the players and teams. And each year I am more certain that this sport is something I want to be a part of. I am thrilled to be a member of the Chicago Outfit and can't wait to continue my love affair with roller derby with them!
