Timeline of Activity:

Discovered the SCA via the Texas A&M sci-fi group. In ASXX I was squired to King Denar, baronial bardic champion of Stargate and Bryn Gwlad, and Principal of the Queen's College of Bards. Within a few years I'd moved to Northshield and got to watch it grow from a region to a principality to a kingdom of its own. I moved to Cleftlands in 2004 and have been here since. I'm still active in the Society, especially in bardic arts.
