I've been fascinated in history, arms and armor, and Celtic culture since I was a kid. Following this passion has resulted in a B.A. in History, a Certificate of Celtic Studies, and a M.A. in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies. This last degree I earned from the University of Ulster in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
I've also been involved in various living history and reenactment organizations for over 13 years. I have performed educational weapons demonstrations and presentations for both adults and children as well as acting as an assistant and guest instructor for several martial arts classes.
