James Fortner has been involved with Renaissance festivals since he was 15 and has been jousting for 20 years. He currently serves as the Spanish Knight with the Hanlon-Lees Action Theatre. As a teenager, his mother originally had a booth at Faire which lead to James’ present day passion alongside his career as a civil engineer for the Air Force in South Houston and welder fabricator.
