Director, MAsT Dallas
Neko is a bisexual leatherman who started his journey in 1996. His travels and learning began as a collared slave. After almost 2 years, his Mistress felt he was on the wrong end of the flogger and spent 3 years training him to provide the proper care and feeding for his own slaves, as well as building upon Leather history, traditions, and ideals. He is the head of his leather house, the House of Blood and Ice, which follows the Code of Bushido.
Through his training, he discovered a desire to educate others – helping people to understand the darker parts of themselves, dishing out his own variety of sadism, teaching about the connectivity of a Master/slave relationship, as well as being an active part of the community.
