Work in Progress

PreviewWork in ProgressSeattle, WA – Last year was all about rebuilding my personal training practice and my own fitness levels. This past spring I embarked on an aggressive and intense five month building cycle with one of primary clients who I knew would be an excellent partner in pushing it to the next level. It was a grueling and exhausting program but I must admit I’m thrilled with the results. I’m now weighing in at 185 pounds (84.1 kg) with approximately 9.7% body fat. It’s definitely the biggest and leanest I’ve ever been, so I decided it was time to document my progress and update my various profile images. I gave my photog buddy, Mike Graves, a call and this past Tuesday we got together at my place for a quick photo shoot in my training studio. You can check out the entire set after the jump… View the gallery »

Throw Back Thursday 2002

YouthThrow Back Thursday 2002Seattle, WA – While I don’t generally participate in the throw Back Thursday (#TBT) practice, I thought my contribution might be appropriate this week since it is Leather Pride Week here in Washington State. The photograph, taken by Malixe back in 2002, captures my run for Washington State Mr Leather thirteen years ago this weekend. Looking back, it’s no surprise the question on everyone’s lips the following days was, “Who is this twink that (sic) just won Washington State Mr Leather?” I can’t help but chuckle with a hint of pride as I think back to the year that followed. It was indeed a transformative experience … Read the rest of this entry »

Vest2015 Grabby Award NominationsSeattle, WA – A couple days ago the 2015 Grabby Award Nominations were posted to the Grabby’s website. Although I began my hiatus from the industry in January of 2014, the content and features produced toward the end of 2013 didn’t street (or get released) until after the beginning of 2014 thereby making them eligible for this year’s Grabbys. Among the four-hundred-thirty-plus nominees in twenty-nine categories, our cast and crew at FetishForce earned three nominations. In addition to FetishForce.com being nominated for Best Fetish Site, both Sounding #9 and Warehouse Kinks were nominated in the Best Fetish Movie Category. Read the rest of this entry »

Site Update & Blog Re-Launch

BeardSite Update & Blog Re-LaunchSeattle, WA – Well, I’ve finally gotten around to updating the site and re-launching the blog. You’ll notice I’ve tried to encapsulate the happenings of the past three years in the posts below, in addition to updating my filmography and personal bio. As some of you may know, I began a hiatus from the adult industry this past January to focus on rebuilding my personal training practice and my own fitness. This has also provided the additional opportunities to reengage with my local fetish/Sm community here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Hopefully this post will bring everyone up to speed on what’s been happening on my end this past year and serve as a nice re-launch to the blog. Read the rest of this entry »

Which Brings Us to Spring 2014

20 September 2014 18:00

Vest Which Brings Us to Spring 2013Seattle, WA – this Spring marked the release of three additional features I directed and occasionally appeared in for Falcon / Raging Stallion Studios. Those titles where Warehouse Kinks for the FetishForce line and its companion title Warehouse Fists for Fisting Central, in addition to the most recent FetishForce release of Sounding 9. It also brought our team’s 2014 Best Fetish Grabbys Awards win for the Trustees, staring Brian Bonds, Dirk Caber, Draven Torres, Jessie Colter, Leo Forte, Preston Steel and Race Cooper. It was an excellent accolade to mark my seven years of work in the industry focused on documenting the best of contemporary gay male BDSM and fetish content. Since I did not attend, my pup, the ever entertaining Element Eclipse (pictured above) was able to accept the award and express our thanks to the Grabbys, the studio and everyone involved in the production on my behalf.
