I have been involved with the leather and kink communities for over two decades. I consider myself an endorphin enthusiast and a silly sadist who enjoys a good laugh when playing. My sadism is more about my entertainment through your pain; it has very little to do with sexual pleasure, if at all.
I founded Power & Trust (a kinky education and support group) in 1997, Knotty Knowledge (a rope bondage peer study group) in 2010, and co-founded (with Kiltgrrl) Toledo Leather Care (a leather care education and event group) in 2015, which later became Toledo Leather Club (a club dedicated to connecting, educating, and supporting the leather community). Over the years, I have been a member of several groups and clubs (Stocks & Bonds, Ohio SMART, and NWOH TNG to name a few). I was an honorary member of La Fraternitié du Loup-Garou (beta 2013, alpha 2015). I served the club as Webmaster, was the featured presenter at CampOUT Revival 2014, and was the Programming Coordinator for and a presenter at both CampOUT Reunion 2015 and CampOUT Courage 2016. The events I have presented at can be found on the History page and future commitments can be found on the Appearances page.
I have had the honor of being a Judge for Mr. Ripcord Toledo Leather 2013 and Midwest Olympus Leather 2017, Tally Master for R&J Leather boy 2016, and Emcee for Cleveland Puppy 2017. The People of Kink podcast interviewed me on Episode 37 (released 08.04.13) and I was interviewed on TPOK Radio 11/198 (released 04.17.16) and 206 (released 06.12.16).
My partner and I bring laughter to the adventure of learning by sharing our life experiences, both the successes and mistakes, and blend our skills and knowledge to present on a variety of topics including communication, energy work, connective practices, alternative relationship styles, and conflict resolution in relationships.
It has been said I am “the sweetest, most innocent looking sadist you would ever want to meet.” When not tying people up, playing with fire, or teaching hula hoop classes, I love to sew, bake, and amuse my Bear with my antics.
