Fred’s relationship with rope has taken many forms and has been ever present in his life. From scouts, to rigging, to rock climbing and now rope bondage. He began tying in 2011, with american and eastern influences, to enhance his bdsm scenes. His passion for rope itself exceed his knowledge and he began to travel for the sole sake of learning more. The last few years of his life have been spent as a traveling rope-gypsy, learning as many different styles and techniques as possible from inspiring teachers and riggers all over the globe. Fred is not easily categorized, stereotyped or labeled, nor is his rope. Instead of following only one methodology of rope bondage in his tying and his teaching, Fred wishes to amalgamate the unique wisdom of each of his teachers, the distinctive styles of different cultures and his personal reverence for the magic in improvised rope. Fred’s focus on fusing traditional Japanese rope bondage with his own chaotic primal nature and a curiosity of the twisted and unexplored. He has taught intensives and conventions both in the US and internationally. He loves his students and the game that is learning how they learn. He wishes to inspire discipline and wonder in their personal tying practices and encourage everyone to dissect, inspect and expand on anything he says. Fred thinks rope is an incredible tool and he looks forward to forever be learning more about it.
