Jack: Operations / Registration
I'm currently calling the Baltimore/DC area home. I am a member of FIST. I relocated to Baltimore from the Denver area. While in the Denver area I served as a long term facilitator of COLLAR. I was also fortunate enough to volunteer for Thunder in the Mountains dungeon build crew for many years. The last few years I was there I lead the design and build of what at the time was the largest dungeon west of the Mississippi, if not the country. I was a founding member of MAsT-Denver, and an active member of several different versions of the Labyrinth as well as the Sanctuary and other groups in the Rocky Mountain region. I have been a proud piercer at The Colorado Danse of Life, a traditional hook pull. I also enjoy teaching leather life skills such as bootblacking, piercing, etc.
When asked how I identify I usually say something along these lines... dyke, butch, gender fluid, poly, Papa/Daddy/Sir, switch and let's not forget boy for someone special! Oh, and tree hugger and wanna-be vegan would be fair labels too. But I am the ever evolving kind so hopefully there will be a few more to add soon.
I proudly serve as the SELFs operations assistant. It's a busy job and I enjoy the variety of duties and opportunities that comes with it! If you see me out and about please introduce yourself, I would love to meet you.

Lord Fenrir: Supply and Setup Coordinator
Early 2015, my eyes peered into a world I could not look away from. Ever since that night, I dove right into the deep end, headfirst, and still have not come up for air. I discovered structure, respect, and a world where I will never have to hide who I am. These discoveries led me to my first SELF event. Seeing all the attendees in a new way, the unspoken language they all know, and my desire to learn more. Here is where I volunteered my time, fulfilled many curiosities, and was welcomed with an overwhelmingly, warm experience. I found more of a home and family than I ever knew I could have.
The Atlanta community has been my home since day one. From that day, I have become an evolving educator, leader, and organizer of many events. I have taught all up and down the eastern seaboard including Tampa to New York City. Co-founded small groups and assisted in running much larger ones.
I give me efforts to steadily working to build this community, and bringing SELF back to an enjoyable place for us all to learn and grow. Now, I am able to serve my community with so much love and spirit. It will be honor to bring SELF alive for you all in the future. Lord Fenrir's pronouns are he/him.
