Tank has been involved in the world of roller derby since 2005 and though he has worn many hats; his heart belongs to announcing.  He is one of a handful of people who has called a WFTDA Championship final. He was a founding member of the Announcers of Flat Track Derby Association (AFTDA), a group dedicated to the education and advancement of roller derby announcing.   In 2007 Tank started to script pregame shows for bouts and in 2010 began writing and producing pregame, halftime, and post game shows for the Cincinnati Rollergirls and their partner video production company, Plum St. Productions.  He also wrote the 2010 East Coast Derby Extravaganza Preview Show and the pregame scripts before every game.  Tank has never been satisfied with being a member of the herd and decided to help create Roller Derby Inside Track, as an analyst to push roller derby journalism to a new level.
