I have several years of experience working in print journalism, and lately have been getting more into multi-media and Web journalism. I've also been involved in roller derby since 2008, starting as a referee for the Quad-City Rollers of Davenport, Iowa. I've been the head coach for the team for three seasons, and am currently looking forward to reffing full time and have participated in bouts for nearby leagues as an NSO, referee and live-Tweet trackside reporter. I took part in RollerCon 2010 and have been to Championships three years in a row as a spectator/blogger. Contact me by emailing tripp (at) fivepointgrandslam (dot) com.
