Rowan Shade #73

“Don’t tell me to smile.”

Hometown: LaGrange Park, IL
Derby position: Jammer/Pivot

How did you get into derby? 
I joined Grand Raggidy (Grand Rapids, MI) when I was in college. I was around long enough to get my minimum skills down before deciding I was putting my skates aside and maybe try this derby thing again another time. About 3 years later I was back in Chicago and saw the Outfit was having tryouts, so I just decided to go and see what would happen.

What is your pre-bout ritual? 
I eat a lot of bananas and get really nervous.

Random fact about you? 
I like to watch horror movies when I am feeling really anxious. In some backwards way, it helps.
