Master Tallen came into the Master/slave lifestyle in 1997 as a slave. He began his evolution into Mastery in early 2002 and is proud of where his journey has taken him. He has experienced a lot on both sides, and with the help of many, has been exposed to numerous perspectives. He enjoys sharing his experiences with others and trying to help them find their own paths. He has presented classes and judged Leather Contests all over the U.S. and beyond.
Currently Master Tallen is the Executive Producer of International Puppy and Trainer Contest, and a founding Producer of the International Person of Leather Contest. He is a Member of NLA Dallas, DPEX, and MAsT, and an associate member of WILI, and serves on the EC and production staff of Beyond Vanilla, and also serves on the production staff of Sin in the City, Leather H.E.A.T., and Women in Leather Legacy.
In 2005, he created the Master/slave Flag. In 2008 he won the Leather title of Northeast Master. In 2011 he became Mr. Great Plains Olympus Leather, and subsequently was honored to be selected as International Mr. Olympus Leather 2011.
He loves sharing what he has experienced as well hearing from others. He is also honored to have received many Pantheon of Leather nominations over the years. But the most rewarding thing of all has been the countless number of people he has helped along in their own journeys. Their successes, and words of thanks to him, mean more than anything.
