Why did you choose derby? At first derby chose me. For more than a year I had multiple people try to get me to join. I finally decided to go for it as a 30th birthday gift to myself. Derby came into my life at just the right time. It gave me something my life was lacking. Derby saved me.
How did you come up with your name? I needed a name that was close to my real name or I knew I'd never answer to it. Anvil-April (Abernathy-SmasHerNasty)
What is your most memorable derby moment? I think it was RollerCon this year. It was my first time going and I had the pleasure of sharing the experience with a camera crew shooting an episode for a series about unique conventions in Las Vegas. I signed up for so many bouts at so many levels of gameplay. I remember taking the track and playing with and against some of WFTDA's top skaters. It was amazing. I also got to marry my derby wife (my third wife lol).
What do you do off the track to unwind? Ha! My nonderby life isn't that exciting. I read, craft and work on my house. I have a blog dedicated to some of those projects along with a weekly meal prep blog. I wish I was a gym junkie. I try.
Who's your derby hero? Kimmie S'More, my derby wife, is my hero. She never gives up, she's an amazing skater and the best teacher. She keeps me grounded on and off the track.
Song that gets you fired up? Right now it's Eminem's Cinderella Man. It just puts me in the right state for bouting.
