Leo found his path in life learning to live radically and authentically in 1988. He is returning from a sabbatical and is eager to get back to serving others in the leather and kink community.
Leo’s passion for piercing, body modification, and other manipulations of the flesh knows no bounds. He is always eager to share his knowledge with others, from basics to intensives to one-on-one mentoring and sacred rituals. He is especially passionate about topics such as service, protocol, blood play, energy, recovering from addiction, and emphasizing practical applications. Leo is an educator at heart and has been educating since 1997, and is also the founder and owner of Beyond Piercing.
Many would tell you that Leo is approachable, straightforward, kind, innovative, and able to teach folx from wherever they may be in their journey. He is Leather, spiritually focused, Master, heavy sadist, disabled, and trans-masculine identified. He believes that learning is a lifelong process and is constantly seeking new experiences. Leo enjoys that every day he is given the opportunity to remember that he is human and laughs at himself often.

The Romance of Being Non-Romantic
Despite the massive shifts in how our culture understands human relationships and sexuality, power dynamic relationships are often assumed to possess elements of sex and romance. Sex is considered by many to be a necessary element of BDSM and power dynamics, but this couldn’t be further from the truth! In “The Romance of Being Non-Romantic,” Leo engages attendees in a discussion that redefines “romance” and “sex” and shares how fulfulling non-romantic power dynamics can be! This class aims to validate attendees and others who design their dynamics in ways that work and honor themselves rather than outside observers. This class welcomes anyone, regardless of gender, sexuality, or relationship status!
