Ken’s journey into leather began approximately 12 years ago upon discovering the play area at a now-defunct bar called Padlock in Phoenix, AZ. He remained on the sidelines until moving to Long Beach 2.5 years ago, where he found a wealth of friends involved in the leather community. With their encouragement and assistance, he chose to become more involved himself by running for and winning the Mr. SoCal Leather title. One of his main goals as a title holder is to expose and invite other people, locally and internationally, to join and discover this tribe as it was once done to him. He flags yellow, hunter green, and light blue on both left and right and is recognized in dark rooms and saunas throughout Mexico. He is originally from Pittsburgh, PA and has lived in Tucson, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Long Beach. Outside of leather, he enjoys video games, pinball, punk/metal, travel, reading, and Latinos.
