Markus is a true texan, born and raised in the rural areas of hill county. His love of leather started at an early age when he apprenticed for a saddle maker. In those years he learned his craft, the subtle nuances of working leather, the respect for discipline and patience in creating a masterpiece. Having served his country in the u.s. navy with two tours in the middle east, Markus returned home and found his way into the leather and d/s community. Seeing a void in the community for quality implements of pleasurable pain, Markus began a hobby of making floggers and paddles. Ten years later this hobby has grown into the house of Markus, a well known purveyor of quality impact toys and leather work. His down home values of truth, honor and respect, coupled with his military training of discipline and never surrender attitude have provided a firm foundation of the principles of leather and allowed him the opportunity to become very involved in all facets of the community. His warmth and friendliness and willingness to always learn is what has endeared him to so many.
Markus is the founder and president of home, a pansexual organization focused on the education and promotion of the d/s, m/s life for beginners and a resource for those already involved. He has been an avid supporter of several local charities, and happily contributes his energies toward helping out those in his local and the greater communities.
Markus has traveled extensively throughout the us to many regional and national events as a presenter focusing on poly households and the art of flogging and recently had the great pleasure to sit on the judging panel of an international title event.
Markus lives here in dfw with his slave dee.
