About the presenter: Pendorbound has been an avid kinkster for most of his adult life, a lifelong “geek,” and an occasional teacher of kink related classes for the past several years.

Computer geek and tinfoil hat fashion model by day, his study of computer security has proven time & time again that it’s not really paranoia if they really are out to get you.
