March 2013 Skater of the Month

MIMI MURDERFACE
#>9000

What does your name mean?
You know that show Metalocalypse?  William Murderface is probably my favorite band member on that show.  Mimi is a family nickname and sounds nice in front of “Murderface.”

What position in Derby do you like to play?  

I like to jam some and block some.  Each uses different parts of my brain, and I like switching between the two.  As a jammer, everyone’s aiming at you, so it’s a challenge to figure out how to sneak or power through while everyone is trying to take you out.  At the same time, I love the teamwork aspect of blocking.  You get to work closely with your teammates to figure out how to be as annoying as possible to the other team.

Do you have other hobbies or play other sports?

I also train in martial arts, and I have a black belt in Shaolin Kung Fu.  I’m trying to figure out how to incorporate Kung Fu with roller derby.  The combination of the two could be pretty extraordinary.

What are some of your goals for roller derby?

To always get better and learn something new each time I lace up my skates. To keep having fun! To help SFVRD grow.  I love this league and all of the amazing women in it, so a large part of my goals for roller derby are tied in with the success SFV!
