About The Derby Nerd

Photo by Todd BurgessAfter having a love-at-first-site moment with the sport in Montreal, the Derby Nerd moved to Toronto in time for the 2008 playoffs and has been writing about the sport since.

The Derby Nerd also reports and provides play-by-play and colour commentary for layer9.ca/ToRD.TV, Rogers TV, and in 2012 made his WFTDA playoff and WFTDA.TV debut. He also announced at both the 2011 and 2014 Roller Derby World Cups.

The Nerd is a certified member of AFTDA (the Association of Flat Track Derby Announcers) and, along with traveling regularly, is a broadcast announcer for Toronto Roller Derby and venue announcer for Durham Region Roller Derby.

As D.D. Miller, the Derby Nerd is also a writer of fiction. His first collection, David Foster Wallace Ruined My Suicide and Other Stories, was published by Wolsak and Wynn in spring 2014.

  1. Hey D.N., do you want the Western teams to submit their home team rankings to you to compile?’

    1. I think there may be some people already on it, out west. But I would LOVE to receive updates on west coast bouts!

  2. I wondered why I’d attracted some serious Northern Hemisphere Derby followers to my Twitter acct (DerbyNerd).
