Rock N Roll is a Real Life Superheroine based in San Francisco, California. She is a co-founder of both the California Initiative: San Francisco and California Initiative: East Bay, two branches of the Initiative Collective.
Soon after her husband, NightBug, left the Pacific Protectorate, the two were in the process of forming another team when they were contacted by Jack Zero of the New York Initiative, asking if they would be willing to form the basis of a California-based branch of the Initiative. The two soon agreed, founding the California Initiative on August 18, 2011.
Rock N Roll also co-founded the California Initiative: East Bay with NightBug on June 11, 2017, making it the third branch of the Initiative to be founded in California. In June of 2018, Aaron Almanza (aka Shadarko) took over leadership of the SF branch in order for NightBug and Rock N Roll to focus on their newly-created Oakland branch. Both branches still work closely together.
She is also responsible for creating the all-female Superheroines Initiative, as well as S.T.A.N.D., an acronym for Superhero Tips And Networking Department.
Along with co-host Impact of the Bay Coast Guardians, NightBug and Rock N Roll host Heroes 101, a livestreamed show aimed at both RLSH and non-RLSH alike.
Rock has written a book, "A True Origin Story - How to Be a Real Life Superhero in 12 Steps," available on lulu.com and amazon.com.
