Tell us about your name
I am a fan of the Thor comics (and the franchise too, I guess), and I lived this this ridiculous Thor shirt. I wore it whenever I could. With that being said, one day my friend Chris saw me in the shirt and yelled, “By the Hammer of Tor!!!” as he hit the ground with his fist. I was in stitches. He told me that should be my derby name. My number is 54k which is the temperature of lightning when it strikes. I am committed to the God of Thunder obviously.

What position do you like to play?
I love jamming the most. It is so gratifying to push a wall out of play or find that sweet spot that helps me get through the pack. Also, DUH, making all the points is the best feeling ever!! However, blocking is pretty cool too, and I want to improve my skills in that as well.

What is your favorite derby memory so far?
There are so many good memories! SFV is really so amazing. My favorite memory thus far was in the last Summer resh Meat Expo when I was a jammer, got lead, and scored  20 points. To top it off, my team took home the victory! It felt really good to know that I contributed to our victory. All the feels for that bout!
