Also known as Sandy Casanova on social media, and Aaron in the meat-space, I can usually be found behind a camera or a drum. The SCA has been part of my life since I was two, and I continue to enjoy the people and the excitement that come with the larger events. Though I call central Pennsylvania home, I travel eastward to NJ and points north to attend EK events.
Saying that I have a persona might be a stretch. I do have a Middle Eastern bend, but I wear what's comfortable for the climate and spend most of my time in Viking-centric households.
