Big Mike, aka SNoB moved to Denver in 2014 from Portland where he was involved in the kink scene since 2006. He has taught at KinkFest, Portland Rope Arts Group, Denver Rope Bite and Valhalla House. He has also performed at Morpheus’s Bondage Extravaganza, KinkFest, DeaconX Fetish Night and Night of Kink. He has also served on the KinkFest committee 5 times.

After seeing a very dynamic suspension performance at his first KinkFest in 2007 he decided rope was the thing for him. His background in theatrical rigging has served him well in his advocacy of “above the ring” safety and goes along with his passion for BDSM education.
