Seattle, WA – Capturing this thing of ours on screen has become a personal passion that began on the set of Daddy Zeus’ Soldiers of Misfortune three years ago; was refined through my involvement with the Folsom series of fetish films produced by TitanMen in conjunction with Folsom Street Fair and benefiting HIV/AIDS charities; and is currently being realized by performing in and co-directing the Rough line with Paul Wilde. I have been truly blessed by opportunities to work with some of the best players in the world and most talented individuals in the industry. Our collaborative efforts together have culminated in scenes with brutal realism and exceptional quality. My heart has been filled by the appreciation expressed by those who have found truth, beauty and inspiration in the films we made. I am humbled to be recognized as the 2010 Grabbys Performer of the Year and to share this distinction in a tie with Adam Killian. For the other ‘big’ wins of the evening, as well as a video of the Grabbys Best Actor and Performer of the Year presentations posted to YouTube by Jim Liu and the transcript of my acceptance speech… Read the rest of this entry »

Chicago, IL – First and foremost, I want to thank Tonya Winter and Winter Fetish for designing and fabricating our homage to the institution that was so instrumental to the development of my perversions in the formative years. I’m actually quite thrilled to be here at the Grabbys. When I went down to Palm Springs to do my first video for Daddy Zeus in 2007, I never envisioned I would develop such a passion for the work we do or the degree of acceptance I’ve received. I also want to thank the Grabbys for recognizing our efforts to capture contemporary BDSM play in the men’s community through the Rough line with the nomination of Shock Treatment in the Best Extreme Fetish category. I truly believe we are accomplishing a service to my community of family and friends by realistically documenting this thing of ours. I am forever in debt to Bruce Cam for providing the opportunity for me to share my passion and the chance to collaborate with the best in the industry at Titan; Brian, Paul, I love you both. No matter what the future might hold, I will always be grateful for my experiences with Titan. For my take on the other categories and a photo gallery of my outfit for the Grabbys… Read the rest of this entry »

Seattle, WA – Three years ago this month, I flew down to Palm Springs CA and performed in my first adult feature, Soldiers of Misfortune, directed by Daddy Zeus (pictured right) for Zeus Studios. Daddy Zeus became a legend in my mind when he began capturing authentic BDSM and fetish on video in the mid ’90s. In features like Brute Force, Daddy Zeus paired accomplished and respected tops with hot bottoms in real scenes that depicted authentic play with a spirit and an edge that still speak to me as a player. Before Zeus, there was Christopher Rage, who masterfully captured this raw, animalistic sexuality on the fringe in the ’80s; and of course, the great grand-daddy of BDSM art films who first caught the essence of the urban ‘leatherman’ in the ’70s with LA Plays Itself, Fred Halsted. With my first film, I was excited to be making my contribution to the genre with my boy at the time, Derek da Silva, and we delivered a kick-ass-scene. A lot has happened since then.
By the end of my second shoot, this time with Titan Media for a Folsom/TitanMen co-branded feature called Fear, I was sold on the idea of partnering with the talent and quality that a major studio could offer in order to capture this thing of ours on screen. Before principle production had wrapped on my third project, I agreed to partner as an exclusive and become ‘the face of fetish’ for Titan. Read the rest of this entry »
