bio (for events and such)

Mike West says, “I’ve been tying up girls and making them cry since I was 5 years old. Sometime in my late 20s, I decided to get organized about it. I’ve been giving private rope bondage lessons since 2002, and teaching larger groups since 2006. Currently, most of my creative energies have been directed towards my small, intimate Rope Grotto shows, my larger yearly Black Xmas parties, and my ‘Month of Sundays’ photography project.

Mike West hates writing about himself in the third person, so he continues, “When I discovered Japanese rope bondage, it spoke to me much louder than other forms, and when I finally got my hands on some good rope, I was hooked. Recently, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to study in Japan and Europe, and it has opened up my mind to just how beautiful and functional this practice can be.”
“I like my bondage like I like my women: tough, fast, and a little bit crazy.”
Mike lives in an underground bunker in San Francisco with his two cats.
