I was born and raised on the outskirts of London around 1571. When I was 16 I left my home due to my father dying and my mother not being able to support me. I took up the rapier and trained at Vincentio Saviolo's school of Defense around 1591.

More Information

I have been going to SCA events since 1995, and have been a member since around 2000. I took up fighting rapier around 2002/2003 and it has been my main interest in the Society since then.

I have also been known to make a fine silk banner now and again.
