Since 2003, Bob Ritchey (aka Bydarra) has been an avid student of alternative practices including BDSM. He’s approached them all with a geek’s analytical eye. Combining this with his love of teaching has resulted in presenting to vanilla and kinky audiences ever since. He’s been the Education Coordinator for the School for Austin Area D/s Education twice, created a local group to provide information to people new to kink to enable them to avoid the pitfalls that trip up so many. He’s also organized and hosted events in the central Texas area. He now travels the world to learn and share with alternative practitioners from all corners of the globe.
