How did you decide on your derby name?
It's kind of a mash-up of my nickname and my favorite musicians. My nickname is "Killer", then my favorite artists are Jim Morrison from The Doors and Freddie Mercury from Queen. Jim Morrison was known as the "Lizard King" but to make it fair to Mr. Mercury, it became Lizard Queen.

What position do you play? What are your derby goals?
I enjoy jamming a lot. My goal is to get better with speed and to become a better blocker as well. 

Who inspires you on the track?
HardLee and Dovah on the track inspire me the most. I want to be able to do what they do on the track. They make it look so easy and pretty.

What is your favorite derby memory?
My first Freshie bout. I was confused and trying to understand what was going on, but I stuck to people and managed the best I could. And my team won! Yaaay!!
