Dayna and Travis know each other through roller derby... well kind of. For many years, Dayna skated while Travis cheered on the powerful athletic skaters—usually with his kids alongside him. While they were often in the same derby venue together, they didn't talk until 2023. When they did meet, they rarely discussed roller derby. Instead, they bonded over science and storytelling, Star Trek and other geeky shows, and altruism and compassion.
