10/14/2014 4:54:34 IronAngel Forge Blacksmithing and metal work - (I am a 30+ year professional smith) this includes but is not limited to blade and weapon building, armor, repair work of historical pieces, research and design in historical styles as well as modern, tool manufacture, stage and film prop design and creation. My specialty area of study is 13th and early 14th century English and German metalwork, though I have a fairly broad spread of times and cultures to draw from as well. Crossbows - I also build replica crossbows, again primarily 13-14th century. Fire - the science and physics of fire, heat and combustion. I design and build gas forge systems as well as flame effects for stage and screen. Music and live sound as well as studio recording. Currently I am the guitar player in a regional heavy rock act that uses a LOT of flame effects on stage as well as the lead tech for a dance performance troop that specializes in featuring fire dance. Much of my duties there also revolve around creating new music or mixing live sound in less than optimal conditions.
