SCA Resume

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. Other than that, I weave, 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.
