(Picture of me in 14th-century duds)

aka John Elys in the SCA

(formerly mar-Joshua ibn-Eleazar ha-Shalib)

One of my hobbies over the last twenty years has been the hands-on study of Medieval and Renaissance culture, particularly music, dance, and cooking. Oh, and of course tent construction. I study and practice these subjects, and other historical arts and sciences, both within and outside the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc..

I'm the webmaster for the New York City area SCA chapter, the Crown Province of Ostgardr.

More recently, I've also taken an interest in La Belle Compagnie, a 14th-century living-history group.
