|Award & Office Badges|
(I have moved to the Kingdom of the Outlands as of July 2021 - please bear with me as this page may not be entirely up to date during this life change.)
I was previously active from spring 2017 to summer 2021 in the Crown Province of Østgarðr. I enjoy rapier fencing and regularly attend local practice where I am. Now that I have moved I am authorized in the Outlands in single sword and all secondary objects (though not cut and thrust, or spear). I would like to contribute by being a rapier marshal in the future, I am still learning how things work here! I've also been active in the webministry as an officer for my local group.
Please note, my pronouns are they/them/theirs, and I prefer gender-neutral forms of address (Noble is currently my preferred title, now that I have an AoA).

In Case of Court
I'd prefer advance notice if I am to appear in Court. I don't always stay for the longer royal courts so please warn me in advance if something's happening that I should be there for (for myself or someone I care about).
I am fine with receiving awards online, but I don't always attend or dress up for court at home; please let me know in advance if I need to be prepared to turn on video.
Very much still in progress, and not currently focusing on this :) I am curious about southern Italian city-states, e.g. Amalfi.
Projects & Publications
I've started a blog about my SCA-adjacent experiences, it is available at my website.
