Timeline of Activity:

In 1989 I found the SCA while chasing some escaped sheep from a friend's field. We heard banging from a neighbor's backyard and looked over the privacy fence to see two men in armor beating each other with rattan swords. They invited us over and I fell in love with everything about the SCA. I was hooked.

I spent some time living in Trimaris, but Ansteorra, and now Vindheim, has always been the place I call home.
