Max has been active in Seattle's kink community since 1992 and has been teaching bondage, BDSM, and polyamory workshops since 1999. He's actively and successfully polyamorous and has several wonderful long-term partners.
While he is proficient with a wide range of BDSM skills, Max especially enjoys the intimacy of rope bondage. Max projects a gentle, dominant energy, and all of his relationships - and most of his scenes - include a substantial d/s component.
Max's love of teaching shines through his workshops, and his love for people informs his personal encounters.
Private instruction and coaching Max offers private instruction and coaching on a wide variety of BDSM technique, to include bondage, scene planning and management, d/s relationships, impact toys, and piercing.
Conventions Max has presented at leather and kink conventions around the country to include Living in Leather (LIL), Thunder in the Mountains, Atlanta Bound, the Folsom Fringe, Denver Bound, KinkFest, BodyBound and Shibaricon.
Events Max has taught at events sponsored by the Stranger, Babeland, Seattle Men in Leather, Seattle’s Center for Sex Positive Culture, the Triskeli Guild, Suspended Animation and many other kink and sex-positive groups.
Other appearances Max has rigged for photo shoots, done live performance art pieces, and exhibited at both of James Mogul's ArtBound events in 2000. He donates his services to several charity / fund raising events each year to include tastings sponsored by the Foundation for Sex Positive Culture and Seattle’s annual Kinky Carnival.
Bondage Workshop Series Max serves as producer / chief instructor for Seattle's monthly "Bondage Workshop Series", which has run continuously since 2003.
Two-Day Bondage Intensives Twice each year Max offers a special Bondage Intensive, providing two full days of focused instruction, from the basics through suspension bondage. Max has been teaching the Bondage Intensive since 2005 and graduated his 13th class in April 2012.
