Started Refereeing: I started my referee training informally in Spring 2013. After a few injury-related delays, my first open games were at the end of January 2014.
Favourite bout/event you have officiated: I had an amazing time at Fantastic 8 in Metz, France, this year. It was really great working with the same referee crew (and two fantastic NSO crews) over the course of three days and really becoming attuned to each other, and refereeing the final, which was between two incredibly skilled teams, and in front of one of the biggest derby crowds I’ve officiated in front of.
Best thing about being a ref: I get to nerd/geek out about stuff on a regular basis with a bunch of other fellow derby nerds. Wherever I go in the world – there’s a whole new bunch of them to meet.
One thing you might not know about me: I keep a blog on Tumblr which includes a bunch of fun memes, but also includes a weekly post on roller derby rules misunderstandings. They’re aimed at absolutely anyone involved in derby and designed to get people talking. You can find it at http://zebraskew.tumblr.com
