I'm an active member of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) where I participate in all sorts of historical activities, including fencing, calligraphy and illumination. I dabble in lots of other crafts too, like cooking, tailoring, fiber-arts...

I'm a P90X grad. Currently my LOVE is bouldering at the local rock gym, ropes are pretty cool too.
