I started fighting in April of 2006 in the Kingdom of Knightfall. I was the warlord of Knightfall from roughly 2008 until summer of 2012 when I moved to Carbondale, IL. There, I started a Belegarth RSO/Sports Club; the realm of Carthage. I acted as Carthage's president for one semester, and have remained on as a community adviser since. I ran the Dagorhir realm of Byzantium as an interim president from fall 2015 until May of 2016, when I assisted in rebooting the realm as the City of Bree, passing leadership to new officers there. I have managed the realm map hosted on www.belegarth.com since April of 2012, I maintain a database of realms in the sport, and I act as a point of contact for new members and realm leaders. I am a Master in the Seneschal Guild, with an emphasis on recruitment and retention. I am the 21st knight of the [[Knights of Oldcastle]] lineage. I have completed but am always expanding on the rebooted New Realm Starter Kit, and I run the Youtube Channel [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLkaDzuYzFiQ19VKfdJwa8Q/featured Boffer Basics].

I began squiring under Sir Morpheus of Wolfpack on February 22nd, 2017 just after Wolfpack Opener of that year. During my squireship I focused heavily on expanding my service in conjunction with my concurrent apprenticeship, and focused on improving my crafting abilities. While I had previously built every type of weapon commonly used, I used this as an opportunity to revisit my building style and work on better equipment. My brief obsession with arrow technology, which is documented on the Boffer Basics Facebook page, was a result of that. I also crafted a full set of leather armor, sans body piece, and a chainmail shirt. I recorded much of these endeavors and used it as an opportunity to create content for teaching others. For event service, I took up head positions at Oktoberfest, Punic Wars, and Wolfpack Opener; I also volunteered in non-head positions at those and other events. For general service, I continued my work on the Belegarth realm list and map, and I also worked on my Seneschal master's project which culminated after about 150 hours as the [[Belegarth Starter Kit]]. This and my YouTube/Facebook channel [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLkaDzuYzFiQ19VKfdJwa8Q/featured Boffer Basics] were my biggest projects and were focused on making accessible and updated online resources.

My knighting took place at Spring Wars of 2019, Saturday afternoon from 1410 to 1545. It was an open challenger trial where I matched equipment and fought until victory; ties to the challenger. I fought 58 challengers for a total of 211 fights, lasting 1h35m.

I got into fighting back in my Freshman year of High School.  I was a pretty small guy, standing at 4' 11" and weighing a hair over a 100 lbs, and I was about as timid as a field mouse.  Honestly, I don't know how I even got into Belegarth.  I had a social circle the size of need point, zero skill with people, and was about as awkward as could be.  However, that didn't stop this random guy in my art class from turning to me one day and saying "Hey, what are you doing Wednesday after school?".  And that started it all.

(Exact years of attendance uncertain; most attended multiple times)
The next couple of years were the most crucial in my fighting history, and in my life.  The guys I fought with didn't accept timid, or weak, or apologetic, or awkward as excuses.  They beat me down, built me up, and after I had pushed myself through it, they gave something I had never had before; confidence.  There wasn't really a particular point when these changes occurred.  I just woke up one day and realized that I wasn't that guy anymore.  I was still me, but I was a different me; I was better.

*[[BearBlast!|Bear Blast]]
After that reshaping process, I started to progress.  My fighting hit the ceiling of skill that my realm could provide and, once I started to get out and experience Belegarth more, it kept going.  I began to make friendships that never would have been possible before, and I began to do things that I never would have dreamed of.  In a way, I can't even truly describe it.  Belegarth has given to me something that I can never, ever repay, and in respect of that debt I have in turn done my best to pay her back.  I give it everything that I have, and I push myself to always do more, do better, and fight harder; it is the least I can do.

It may seem strange to include so much life history in my "Fighting History", but really the two are inseparable.  Looking at myself now, I stand 5' 8", I hold my head high, I exude an aura of confidence, and I put myself out there for the world to see, and I'm not afraid of it, and Belegarth is responsible for all of it.  It's as much a part of me as I am a part of it.
