Master Bob calls the Portland and Willamette Valley kink communities home. He serves as the Executive Director of MAsT International, is a Faculty member for The Butchmanns Experience and is a member of the Butchmanns Board of Directors. He is passionate about helping others to live more joyful and fully authentic lives both in and out of the leather community, and has established and organized fun and supportive environments for his community, moderated and facilitated discussion groups, mediated conflicts, participated on panels, and presented interactive workshops on various topics ranging from M/s dynamics and S/M technique to “Conversations on Spirituality and Sexuality”. While he understands that being out is a luxury not everyone can afford he feels fortunate to be able to choose this path for himself and his slaves. Master Bob feels modeling wholeness by telling the truth about who and what we are, despite the perceived risks, is an act of authentic leadership to which he aspires. It is his hope to honor both our unique differences and our shared common experience, building bridges of understanding both within our local leather communities and within our larger circles of influence as well.
