Hale Yeah has been a roller derby photographer since 2009 and has been very fortunate to cover such teams as Gotham, Garden State, and the Jerzey Derby Brigade. His introduction to the sport came through Lawless Lizzie and a broken leg that kept him from his other skating love: playing ice hockey. He enjoys writing, acting, and making people laugh.
