Timeline of Activity:

I picked up a sword for the first time at my first event. It was what I had come out to do. The first Queen's Hope I fought in, was Ebigardis II, then Elizabeth, and then I fought in Elizabeta I's, and was successful.

The first adult Queen's tournament I fought in, I got to the top 6, and then dropped out. That was 2009, when I was 16.

In 2011, at Gulf Wars, right before the field battle, I became a cadet to Don Dore and Don Ceallach mac Domhnaill.
Winning the Ansteorran tournament at Pennsic 2017 was a really big deal to me. I don't think an Ansteorran had won it since the 90s, so it had a lot of meaning.
