Erich entered the Leather community in 1995 at a truck stop in Dallas, Texas before relocating to San Jose and the South SF Bay area in 1997.  He has been involved in M/s relationships for much of that time, most recently serving his cherished Lady, Ms Margaret Anderson, for 11 years prior to her passing in the spring of 2014. 

He has served his hometown clubs- Santa Clara County Leather Association and smOdyssey, Inc – over those years as a member in several coordinator and volunteer roles before helping create the Northwest Leather Celebration, serving as assistant producer from 2008 through 2014. Erich assumed the role of  executive producer for 2015, and proudly became co-owner and Producer of the NW Master/slave Contest and NWLC in 2016.   He also previously assisted his Lady in running the trainings for servers at the Northern California Tea and Discussion Society for several years.

Outside of the community he works as a technologist turned manager in Silicon Valley, loves soccer as both a player and a fan, has studied karate and competes in half-marathons and triathlons. He enjoys doing restoration work on his 1904 Victorian house and his newest project- a 1971 Ford Mustang.
