Over the last several years my field of study has been in the art and craft of theatrical violence, which is a fancy way of saying I'm working in the field of stage combat. I am a recongnized Advance Actor Combatant with the Society of American Fight Directors, and am skills proficient in six of the Society's eight weapons & fighting styles: Unarmed Stage Combat, Broadsword, Rapier & Dagger, Smallsword, Sword & Shield, and Knife. I also have demonstrated proficiency in Theatrical Firearms Safety.
