I have been a member of the SCA since 1995. I first started in the Dominion of Myrkfaelinn, Principality later Kingdom of AEthelmearc. I was inactive for a while, and now I am playing again in the Canton of Lions End, Crown Province of Østgarðr. These days, I am primarily involved in Rapier and Heraldry. In the past, I have also done Rattan, archery, and a variety of A&S.


Known among other Jews as Yehuda ben Moshe, most Italians call me Leone di Moise. I had been living in the Republic of Venice, but in 1595 I moved to Livorno, in Tuscany, following the Grand Duke's 1593 charter ensuring the rights of all residents of the port city, including Jews.
