How did you discover roller derby? A close friend of mine (annathrax) was on RRRG and when I watched her bout, I knew I wanted to skate.
List your notable derby injuries...My right knee has been mostly numb for going on 2 years or more. When I can feel it following a fall...I know I’m in trouble.
What do you do to get in to “derby mode”? I love putting on my "bout-fit"
How did you select your derby name and number? Well, I recently got married and my legal name is Amy Kilpatrick, soooo my name is Aim and Kil - AK47
How do you pay the bills, feed your derby addiction? I help teenagers in learning how to handle emotions and life in general...then after work I can allow myself to do something that helps me with mine - derby!

Loud and Fast will do just fine.
Do you have Tattoos? What, where, and why?
Let's just agree that I don't :)
What is something that most people don’t know, or would never guess about you? I am half of a comedic duo.
What was your previous athletic background, if any? Various athletic activities preceded Derby, none worth mentioning because nothing compares to the sport of roller derby.
Which skater inspires you most, and why? It would be hard to pick just one. Every one of us has a life outside of derby full of responsibilities and hardships. Every one of us pushes ourselves physically and emotionally to be good at this sport. We are a “pack” of friends and I respect any woman that puts on a pair of skates.
Do you have any advice for skaters just starting out? Start running outside of practice and start now...you'll thank me later.
Favorite Derby Gear?
My Helmet, I love the individuality that stickers provide. I have a Punisher Skull in the front of my helmet amd many others of course.
