I joined the SCA in AS XXII, in the Shire of Stormvale (which, at the time, was on the edge of the Known World). Since then I've spent time in Hawkland Moor, Cynnabar, and Grey Gargoyles before venturing into Mundania for about 10 years. I spent some time in the wonderful Barony of Shadowed Stars and recent moved to Cynnabar.  I was mostly a herald for the first 13 years or so, and then began teaching classes on religious studies. My primary field is research, particularly research into Western Christian religious practices. I've got some competence as a bard and a cook, dabbled in other arts (including dyeing, brewing, costuming, and woodworking) and learned that I have no talent for a longer list. My secret wish is to become a spearman. I'm mostly 14th-century but I flirt with Elizabethan from time to time. I still think of myself as the SCA equivalent of a mendicant friar, but my habit would scandalize any halfway decent Franciscan. In real life, I'm currently working for a company that provides software to churches, but I have a wide range of past and future careers.
