I have been fencing for fun, as a career and occasionally competitively since 2002.  I began student teaching my first year and in 2005 became a moniteur (instructor) by the U.S. Fencing Coaches Association and the Academie d’Armes Internationale.  I taught fencing in Oregon until moving to New Mexico.   I studied under Prevost Michael Heggen,  Maestro James V. Ciaramitaro,  Maestro Charles Selberg, Maestro John McDougall and Maestro Methias Mesdag.  I still offer private lesson in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
