I began photographing roller derby in January 2010. The St. Chux Derby Chix had incorporated in December 2009, and I was soon brought in to snap a few photos. Well, that few soon turned into thousands as I became the league's official photographer. Drawn to the sport for it's speed, physicality, culture, and all around amazing people, it has been one of the most rewarding projects of my life.

I am extremely fortunate to live and work St. Louis, Missouri, a town with not one, but THREE elite level roller derby leagues. I am even more fortunate to be part of this great community of athletes and truly outstanding human beings.

Special thanks to all the St. Chux Derby Chix, Arch Rival Roller Derby, St. Louis Gatekeepers, Confluence Crush Roller Derby, Elizabeth Jefferson, Bob Dunnell, Danforth Johnson, Steve Jurkovic, among MANY other fantastic people for their support over the years.
