My Life In Roller Skates

My name is Adra Janean Fenstermaker, but to some, I'm just called "Pain" - shortened from my roller derby name, Window Pain #47. 

I have skated for film and television, as a bouting skater for the Lake Tahoe Derby Dames, performed at the Wiltern Theater, Hollywood Palladium and LA Pride in Los Angeles California. 


I've rolled my way through casinos in Vegas, Reno and Tahoe - yes, I have the pics to prove it.

I am a firm believer that roller skates wouldn't be complete without hula hoops...

I cut my editing teeth on roller skate videos I used to post to skate blogs, little edits like these samples below.


FACT: I've been known to ask "Can I wear my skates" to filmmakers, because I want to fill up my IMDb page with as many WINDOW PAIN #47 credits as humanly possible in my lifetime.
