Joel at Coronation, April AS LII
|Resides: Concordia of the Snows|
|Awards: Order of Precedence|
|Award & Office Badges|
Joel is a resident of Vestfell Farmstead and husband of Aife ingen Chonchobair in Derthaige.
He originally started here largely to support his wife, of whom he is immensely proud. Formerly a protege to Mistress Lylie_of_Penhyll, clearly somewhere along the way this "Mundane-in-tow"(tm) failed a saving throw and was elevated to the Order of the Pelican.
When keeping out from under foot, he tends to be found in the kitchen. Beware of the sharp kitchen implements in his wake, they tend to be far sharper than you expect.
Joel isn't quite sure where or when he is from. Vague recollections of 12th Century western Germany (Worms) exist, but, alas, the amnesia has not yet abated.

Any class I teach can definitely be reprised, feel free to ask. Since I tend toward the service side of things these tend to be service related and finding an appropriate venue for them can be difficult.

In Case of Court
If my presence is to be required in Court, please notify Aife ingen Chonchobair in Derthaige
I am perfectly fine with the concept of receiving non-polled awards in an "Ethereal Court".
Joel (mka Joel) works as a computer consultant, and his non-SCA hobbies are tech at Science Fiction Conventions and theater sound design. He spent 8 years on the Board of Directors of the Theatre Association of New York State and is currently on the Board of Directors of Alpha Psi Omega, the National Theatre Honor Society. He's also the Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the Collar City Players, a new theatre company in Troy, NY. 4 years in a restaurant kitchen back in high school/early college have never really left his brain, and are the real source of his kitchen savvy and work ethic. He has a long-standing tendency toward being helpful, and a knack for delegation. He's finally finished his Master's Degree in Technology Management but is still digging out from under the backlog in his life created by two and a half years of neglecting everything else.
