    A brief introduction...


    Hail and well met! :-)

    In the SCA, I am known as Peter Geoffrey of Turnberry. In persona (in the SCA), I am the son of immigrants from Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) China, born and raised in the West, and now living the life of an apprentice healer, scholar, and dabbler in many things.

    I fiddle on the violin, sing, dance, enjoy and occasionally tell stories, and move / serve / clean / haul whatever the very nice event stewards/Autocrats ask us to. Once upon a time, a group of kind and very, very, very patient lady friends even helped teach me to sew. :-)

    I first began adventuring in the SCA in September of A.S. 37 (2002), after many stories and adventures shared with many kind friends. I began my SCAdian/Rennie life as a loyal son of the Midrealm, a proud member of the Barony of Cynnabar, and a friend of Revel Grove and Hollygrove. I sang with the Cynnabar Collegium Musica, danced with the Bedlam Medieval Dancers of Cynnabar, and played with Cynnabar's musicians. I then spent three equally happy years in the Kingdom of Calontir, and joined the musicians, singers, and dancers of the Barony of Three Rivers.

    Since A.S. 45 (2010), I've been a merry member of Barony of Bright Hills, having adventures all over the Kingdom of Atlantia and spending weekends in the Autumn playing gigs at Maryland Renaissance Festival.

    Mundanely (in real life), I'm the son of immigrants from modern China, born and raised in the West, and now living the life of an in-training pediatric oncologist, molecular biologist, and dabbler in many things.

    Welcome to my slice of the The Dream. :-)
