How did you get into derby? My then and now derby wife, Bloody Bathory, found me at a poetry slam... then found me in an anthropology lecture of 300+ people... and pretty much stalked me until I agreed to pursue roller derby.
How did you pick your derby name? I was denied my first name, Paralizya Minelli, and zoned out for hours when FLYON MAIDEN popped in my head. It's like Iron Maiden... but faster, and can kick Bruce Dickenson's ass!
Likes I LOVE onezies... rock n roll, things that remind me of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, cartoons, skating, and going FAST!!!
Dislikes Burglars, sour milk, people that cannot accept derby into their heart.
Favorite thing about derby I have never felt so passionate about anything in my life. I have found my "thing," and that thing is an alternative sport full of spunk, braaaaaiinnss, and athleticism. It's like a wild, blobular ever-growing monster (a nice monster, with a cool hat) and I am one of its countless blobs that morphs and adapts to keep the beast alive, thus giving me purpose and a continuous quest for improvement... and friends..lots of friends.
Fun Facts I began my derby career with Northwest Arkansas Roller Derby in Fayetteville while attending college. I transferred to Houston Roller Derby a month after graduating in 2010. Also... Praise "BOB"!

How did you get into derby? Derby is a family affair. We went to a game for my brother’s birthday and we were immediately hooked. He signed up to be a ref and I joined our recreation league, the Machete Betties.
How did you pick your derby name? The origin of my skater name is a combination of wanting to incorporate my real name, and a secret nod to the ghost train in Ghostbusters II. The Ghostbusters franchise is a favourite of the Comeaux siblings. Who ya gonna call? 555-2368!
Likes/Dislikes Long walks on the beach and mean people? You’re not going to ask me to take my clothes off for some sort of tasteful pictorial session, right?
Favorite thing about derby Derby is good people!
Fun Facts I think I revealed too much already in committing my Ghostbusters obsession to the world wide web, but thanks for asking.
