I am a Hiberno-Norse skald and skribent (poet and scribe). In younger days I was a trearbeider (woodworker), kjøpmann (merchant), minor smed (blacksmith), and occasional viking.

Born in 961 in Dublin to a Norwegian father and an Irish mother who died in
childbirth.  Sent to Norway (Austevoll fylke in the Jarldom of Hordaland in Western Norway.) to be a thrall.  Adopted by the Chieftain of Austevoll. 

In Northshield, I am a scribe who specializes in non-traditional scrolls.  I primarily make the scrolls look like runestones on either wood or clay, but also do other styles in wood or clay.
