Richard joined the SCA as an embroiderer (which remains his primary focus) but is interested in many things! He has taught classes on medieval finance, accounting, and economics, and he plays a variety of instruments. Lately, he has taken up archery and heralding!
Richard is a wandering bard in mid 14th century England. Born a commoner, he trained with the longbow as a child and served in the battles of Crecy and Poitiers, before returning home to a life he barely remembered. Unable to commit to the tedium of farming, he took up the path of the troubadour, wandering the countryside, playing music at inns and taverns. A love of beauty in his heart and a desire to leave the horrors of war behind, he embraces all things that make the world a bit more wonderful in which to live.

1350s/High Medieval is the way I costume/portray my persona, and I would love any scrolls that pull from that period for inspiration.
