Hyde Addams
 
Board Chairman

Hail to the community.

 

My name is Hyde Addams and it’s a pleasure to serve the community as the Chairman of the Board. My pronouns are he/him.

 

I was born in Sydney, Australia but moved to the USA when I was 7. I spent 10 years there, with most of my time being in Florida. I moved back to Australia but I moved to Perth, when I was 17 and have been here since. I grew up in a household that didn’t really hold any faith or religion close, my mother follows the Buddhist philosophy but it was never anything she taught me. I was allowed to explore and find what worked for me. I worked my way through the mainstream religions as I lived in a very religious area, but these didn’t work for me. I worked my way through many different faiths as well and while many of them are great I never found a place that found right for me. I was introduced to Asatru as a faith 2011, I think, and have followed it faithfully since. I have found my home within Asatru and will do my best to serve and continue to learn as much as I can.

 

I have been a charter member for quite a few years now and started serving the community as an ambassador a few years ago. I was an ambassador and the lead ambassador for the Australian region and enjoyed being able to serve my community. I ended up being nominated and then elected as Director of the Ambassador Program. I did my best to serve the community within this role and did my best to strengthen and expand the Ambassador Program, as I’m sure every Director before and to come will continue to do.

 

While my position on the Board has changed I still want to let everyone know that I am available to reach out to if you need me.

David Nix

Director of Military Affairs

Hail to the Community, my name is David Nix. I am Active duty U.S. Army having joined in 2005. I am A father to one beautiful daughter and handsome little boy. I was raised in a Christian home, but never felt like it was me. When I was in high school, I discovered the New age section in the local book store and started on the adventure that was Runes and Wicca/ Pagan. I felt more at home, but still didn’t feel quite right.

 

I still have my first set of runes from the early 2002. I joined the Army in 2005 and deployed to Iraq in 2006. As anyone who as every been to war can tell you, it changes you. I tried to be normal during that time and gave being a Catholic a try. Needless to say, that wasn’t for me.

 

After this I started back down the road of learning and started on the road I would later learn as Asatru. I continued down this road quietly and kept to myself. I struggled with depression and anxiety due to work and kept to myself. After getting tired of being miserable, I decided to put my family and my faith first. I requested a religious accommodation and needless to say this put me on a highway for the Community not just a path. Shortly following this decision, I encountered other practitioners who, like me, felt like Fort Bragg needed an Asatru community that was in accordance with Army EO policies; because no one likes meeting a group only to learn that they are racist or sexist. We have been on an amazing journey since then meeting weekly since 2018.

 

I hope to bring that knowledge and experience back to TAC and help grow our community.

I look forward to serving the community as the Director of Military Affairs and Military Ambassador.
