Juvie Hall (aka Diana Fedoroff) is a study in wackiness. A born goofball with a penchant for academia, she’s been known to win both karaoke and national oral argument competitions. She’s a lover and a fighter, a gentlewoman and a scholar. Her favorite activities include collecting letters to follow her name (including B.S., B.A., and J.D.), rollerskating in the counter clockwise direction, and striving to overcome both roller derby opponents and outmoded ideas. She is currently a freelance writer, editor, and budding documentary filmmaker.
Juvie joined the Rose City Rollers in July 2009. Seven months later, in February 2010, she was drafted onto the best damn roller derby team in North and South America: the Guns ‘N’ Rollers, where she is happily continuing to kick ass.

Cynthia Lopez made her first film at age eleven, the print of which was tragically lost. After searching for her soul in an academic career and sharpening her barista skills while doing video work on the side, she experienced an old-school epiphany at an academic conference that involved burning ears, dizziness, and a somersaulting stomach and dropped everything to focus on filmmaking. No one has broken it to Cynthia that the epiphany was actually a mild case of the flu. Cynthia has written, produced, directed, shot and edited both documentary and narrative fiction projects since 1998.
A recent retiree from the Portland music scene, Shreddy Mercury played in several bands before heeding the call of roller derby. He is currently preparing for his second season as a member of The Bridgetown Menace, Portland’s men’s travel team. Like Juvie, Shreddy enjoys traveling for roller derby, having visited such exotic locales as Tacoma, WA, St. Louis, MO and Ft. Wayne, IN.
