SCA Resume

MoL Authorization Card Project


I'm an early 21st century SCAdian. Nominally 12th century lowland Scots. I have been in the Society since October 1990 as a freshman in college, when I found a flyer promising to teach me how to make chain mail. I weave as often as I can, knit and embroider, and sew as little as possible. I'm also a middling-competent musician with several instruments and a pitch problem with singing after cancer treatment that I'm trying to overcome.
