Co-producer, Writer, Director
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.
Art Director & Marketing
Theresa’s one of those creative types that always seems to have her finger in a new pie. Ever since she was a girl, she had a habit of meshing interests in storytelling, technology, art, photography, and film. As an adult, she lives her girlhood dream of working on her own terms… For her that means collaborating with amazing, creative, and kind-hearted people in making dreams come true through her design and consulting business, which she’s been running since 2005. (She also runs a blog that supports the power of creative living, called Ecstatic Making!) She has coached and collaborated with over a hundred clients, healers, designers, writers, and filmmakers in getting their work out into the world in a way that most authentically represents their vision and voice. She does this by listening carefully, getting to the real story, and helping execute it through design, web technology, and strategic marketing. She’s excited to be a contributor on the Flat Track project, as it allows her to combine several of her passions into one incredible project.
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.
