I am The Gryphon of Rivenvale. I am a memeber of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc). The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe....That sounds boring...see http://www.sca.org/ for more info. I like all things medieval. I mostly do leather work as part of my re-creation. I also take part in the tournement fighting and of course the reveling. Gryphons rock...I am The Gryphon.

Mundanely I work in an engineering test lab. I like to hike, camp, see movies or just chill with friends, and travel... going to the ocean is the best thing here in the states. I've traveled abroad to Iceland, Germany, Holand, Belgium, France, and Luxemburg. I hope to get to see Ireland, England, Scotland, and Italy sometime.
