Master Skip

 

Master Skip addressed a crowd of nearly one million people at the Millennium March on Washington, and since then he has given more than a dozen keynote addresses and presented nearly 250 programs on the spiritual dynamics of BDSM at noteworthy leather events throughout North America.  He has been profiled in Nerve.com magazine, Power Exchange magazine, the award-winning documentary film Pup, and Ask the Man Who Owns him, a book on gay male Master/slave relationships that received the National Leather Association’s 2010 non-fiction literary award.

Master Skip is a co-founder of People of Leather Among You (2002-2006), a social and educational group for Southern California men and women interested in the integration of spirituality and leather/fetish sexuality; has served as a core instructor for the Butchmanns Experience (2001-2007), a periodic weekend retreat offering opportunities for profound personal growth to leathermen and women of all sexual orientations and identities; and was a co-producer of Southwest Leather Conference (2004-2010), “The Leather Family Gathering of Heart and Spirit.”  Honors include the Leadership Award and the Lee Montague Memorial Community Service Award from Avatar Club Los Angeles, the Pantheon of Leather Community Choice Award, both the Master Heart Award and the Master Jack McGeorge Excellence in Education Award from the Master/slave Conference, and most recently the Leatherman’s Heart Award from Southwest Leather Conference.

In his own words, “Blood may be thicker than water, but leather is thicker than blood.”
