I initially started at Notre Dame University (“The Notre Dame Knights”) approximately 20 years ago. I liked the look of the sport and started with Sutherland who was young but loved swords so it was something we could do.  I often go for a run and attend a gym for some additional work.  Outside of fencing, I have a farm in the south west with sheep, cattle and a large garden to manage.
