Tells us about your derby name & number.
My derby name is Murderous Maverick. I wanted a name that described a part of me and was also intimidating. Murderous took care of the intimidating. Maverick took care of describing a part of me. It is not only the name of Tom Cruise’s character from Top Gun it also has a couple definitions and one of those is….
Maverick - a lone dissenter, as an intellectual, an artist, or a politician, who takes an independent stand apart from his or her associates: Synonyms: nonconformist, individualist; free thinker; loner, lone wolf.
I choose the number 55 because of a song released by “Group X” called “Schfifty-Five”. Ever since that song I started saying it that way instead of the proper way.
How did you get involved in roller derby?
I had seen a bout a couple years ago and mentioned to my husband and mother that I would like to try it out. Well…I chickened out and kind of forgotten about it. My mom sent me a link on facebook about Confluence Crush’s Date the Crush informational meeting. I ended up going to the meeting and I am now a member of Confluence Crush.
What motto do you live by?
It’s not about being the best or building Rome in a day, it’s about going to bed a better person than you woke up as; in short…PROGRESS!
