I am Rodeo. I got my derby name from my love of cowboy style. Years ago I took a shot at actually trying to bull ride. It was a blast but not really a good fit. I came to roller derby at a quiet and lonely time in my life. I needed adventure and a challenge. It was no easy go. I had to start fresh on quad skates. Like bull riding, I fell but got on again. I have been at it 10yrs. I skated first in Alaska and took my skates anywhere my travels go. Something about the crazy and hard hitting derby world just keeps me coming back to the track. Back in Alaska I was a bonafide state researcher of wild salmon. I lived among caribou and bears. Fording the wild cold rivers and making my own yearly journey upriver. After too many tangles with grizzlies and the occasional wolf it was time for change. I found myself in the even colder land of 10000 lakes. It was a place well spent for shaping my derby adventure. Life and some virus came with great force. I finally journeyed back home to the rocky mountains. Now I push correspondences and handle many a parcel. I am hard working and dedicated soul. The mountains called and my journey continues. Live Bold Bleed Gold!
