THL Matteo Genovese - I spent my early time in the SCA attending only a few events socially. Since 2016, I've been trying to increase the visibility of Thrown Weapons throughout the East. I am a three time Consort's Champion of Thrown Weapons, I am currently also pursuing archery and occasionally fence.
