Hello! My name’s Murphy, I’m 19 (Until June), and this will be my first year at Camp Augusta! I grew up in North Carolina in a big ol’ family (who I love very much), and I’m currently in college in Massachusetts (I’m studying to be a Blacksmith!) I’m a history nerd, a martial artist, and a maker of things. I’m so stoked to meet you this summer!


Some quick facts about me!

  1. I’ve worked at renaissance fairs, a NASCAR fabrication shop, and a summer camp!
  2. I started my blacksmithing journey at age 14 (I built a forge out of a sink and some plumbing parts)
  3. I play bass guitar, and I made two of them
  4. I have a tattoo of two ravens on my leg! Ask me what it means…
  5. I’ve never made a sword. I’ve tried three times, and all of them broke.

I Love Building Stuff!

Some of my favorite things are…


  • Rush
  • Mastodon
  • Animals as Leaders
  • Ulver
  • Thundercat


  • Blade Runner (and BR2049)
  • Drive
  • Stalker
  • Thor: Ragnarok
  • Mad Max: Fury Road


  • Dune
  • House of Leaves
  • Brave New World
  • Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
  • It

That’s pretty much who I am! I’m excited to make some memories this summer!
