Master Tallen & slave george & Pup Rocko

Northeast Master 2008
International Mr. Olympus Leather 2011
Mr. Great Plains Olympus Leather 2011

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

Slave george came into the leather lifestyle in 2000, relatively late in life.  He is living it 24/7 since being permanently collared by Master Tallen in 2009, his first relationship as a slave.  Slave george has been trained at GMSMA, Dungeon Academy, Men's Academy and MTTA Academy and, of course, by Master Tallen.  

Though they live in separate cities, the Master/slave relationship is kept alive by frequent communications and many, many trips -- the frequent flyer miles are piling up. They have presented classes and judged Leather Contests all over the U.S. and beyond. Both have served on staff at MTTA Academy and as Regents of Leathermen’s Academy, as well as worked in the production of numerous annual Leather events.

Currently Master Tallen is the owner and producer of the Heartland Person of Leather Contest, and is the Executive Producer of International Puppy and Trainer Contest.  He is a Member of NLA Dallas, DPEX, and MAsT, and serves on the EC of Beyond Vanilla. Slave george is a member of NLA Dallas, MAsT, South Florida Bondage Club and South Florida Boys of Leather. 

In 2005, Master Tallen created the Master/slave Flag.  In 2008 he won the Leather title as Northeast Master.  In 2011 he became Mr. Great Plains Olympus Leather and subsequently was honored to be selected as International Mr. Olympus Leather 2011.

Pup Rocko is a boisterous pup and was always a dog at heart but it wasn't until 2009 when he lucked into a chance encounter with Master Tallen that he found a forever home. Under the care of Master Tallen this young pup quickly progressed from curious novice to a full blown leather hound! Before 2010 Rocko was collared and since then has been happy at the feet of Master Tallen's leather family!

In the exciting years since he first started to wear Master Tallen's collar around his neck and around his heart, Rocko has travelled extensively to sniff and explore all sorts of experiences and aspects of the lifestyle! He has served as a volunteer and staff at many events in a variety of roles, always with an eager wag!

Currently Pup Rocko is on the production staff for the Heartland Person of Leather Contest, and the International Puppy and Trainer Contest. He is a member of NLA Dallas.
