Native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – D marked the beginning of his Leather Journey in 2004, with the purchase of leather jock strap from The Leather Man NYC.

D strongly supports the message, as long as you believe—you can achieve—for all things are possible through strength, determination and passion. D is not an abbreviation for Douglas, it stands for three signature words that he lives by: Always Daring, Never Stop Dreaming & Always Deliver on your promise! For these are true characteristic of Leatherman and the cornerstones of our community. D is a proud full member of Barons of Steel (BOS), associate member of The Centaurs M.C, and Three Rivers Leather Club (TRLC), Also he is the Contest & Judges Coordinator for Pittsburgh Leather Pride

INTERNATIONAL POWER EXCHANGE 2017
Kevin is super judgmental about almost everything – so judging for International Power Exchange is right up his alley. He is also pretty protective of his alley. His favorite number is 792 – and while this isn’t true at all, it seemed like the sort of thing title contestants love to memorize. Kevin has judged other contests in the past, like International Person of Leather. He also is 52.8% of the 2017 International Power Exchange title, along with his charming Follower. Kevin and Katie are co-authors of the Authority Transfer book Lead Follow Love. They teach about Authority Transfer / Power Exchange (within the kink world) and teach fitness classes as their “retirement” fun. Despite occasionally being told “go fuck yourself,” years of stretching and yoga have yielded zero progress in that regard. Nor can he blow himself, in case that was your next question – but Katie is an extension of his will, so maybe he can? Kevin loves orgasms (giving), board games and Swiss Chalet, but would rather lick the forehead of an ostrich than eat Swiss Chalet sauce.
