I have been doing rope fetish work for about 10 years. It has become my major artistic expression. I have been photographing my work for nearly as long. It has spiritual and erotic elements and is not unlike bodywork. I focus on aesthetics - knot-work, form and visual composition. I use some Shibari techniques and incorporate western and Celtic influences as well.
My shots are indoors with natural and artificial light as well as outdoors. My outdoor work is expanding, as I like to find striking settings and do edgy work. I attend Burning Man and camp with Suspended Animation. I teach rope to groups or in individual settings.
I am looking for gigs, for trade or paid. I have worked with a number of excellent models. These include JessiK, Jenni Trixter, ModelT and others. I have worked with other leading riggers.
I also do performances and have performed at venues in LA, SF, Seattle and other cities.
