AB: The Bootleggers are really grateful that you've been practicing with us a bunch this season; as a Red Rock 'N' Roller Derby Ref, do you regularly practice with both leagues?(*Bootleg City + Wharf City Rollers)
H:Yes, I Practice with each league once each week.
AB: How long have you been reffing for?
H:This is my first season, I’ve done about a dozen games now. (not including tournaments)
AB: What brought you to roller derby?
H: The Movie Whip-it; I found a game shortly after seeing it in Red Deer Alberta, in February 2011. I liked a lot, having 'All the theatrics of Figure-Skating, and the Brutality of Women’s Rugby too’ & I’ve been attending bouts regularly ever since.
AB: What's it like working with new ref crews for every game?
H: I like that aspect, the many people that I’ve done bouts with have been so positive and helpful. Many of us maintain contact, and discuss rules and scenarios regularly.
AB: Have you ever thought about playing roller derby?
H: Just recently, I may make an appearance at DAY of DERBY DEBAUCHERY IV in the Co-Ed Black & White.
AB:Do you come from a sports background?
H:I grew up playing Hockey, also I played Rugby in High School and University, and coached high-school Rugby for several years.
AB:What do you think makes roller derby different from other sports?
H: Roller Derby being so recently reemerged, is evolving quickly and getting better every year. I’m eager to see what Derby will be when there are teams made of players playing since their childhood.
AB: Do you have any advice for skaters that would help them cut down on their penalties?
H:My advice would be to read the rules and casebook, and if you don’t understand why a call was made against you then ask why at an appropriate time.
AB: If you could have any superpower what would it be?
H:The ability choose my place in Space-Time, could be helpful if you wanted to see a play again from a different angle.
