Zuul #1024

Skater of the MonthFebruary 2016

Skater of the month for February 2016!

Tagline: “There is no Dana, there is only Zuul!”

Position: I don’t have a dedicated position yet, but I love jamming and I think that’s what I want to focus on.

What’s the origin of your derby name? Zuul, the Gatekeeper of Gozer, is a demigod from the movie Ghostbusters. Zuul posses the character Dana Barrett and my real name is Dana, so it’s kind of perfect. The name was suggested to me by the lovely Killamazoo skater Slay Valentine.

Injuries? Only bumps and bruises so far. Planning for the worst and hoping for the best.

What’s your non-derby life like? I work full time to ensure my two cat children have a purrfect life. My favorite non derby activities include reading, enjoying nature, binge watching shows on Netflix, and blowing up the gender binary.

Advice for someone interested in derby? Come skate with us! Seriously, just try it out. Even if you decide it’s not for you, you’ll meet some of the sweetest people around and that alone is worth it.
