I was born in September, 1971. I’ve been married since October, 1994. My wife and I are child-free by choice – we don’t want that kind of expense or responsibility. I make my living as a Customer Service Rep for a credit card bank. My wife is permanently disabled.
I’m a fantasy death fetishist. That means I get off on watching consenting adults role-play fantasy death scenes. Whether in mainstream movies, TV shows, or independent fetish videos, it doesn’t matter. If it’s well-produced, I’m interested.
My fetish dates back to my youth. Thanks to relatively liberal parents and a neighborhood friend’s Mom, I got to see a lot of Horror movies by the time I was 13, starting with The Exorcist at age 10. By age 15, I was getting bored with their formulaic storylines, particularly Slasher flicks. They just weren’t scary anymore, so I started watching them just to see how many different ways filmmakers could kill off a bunch of stupid coeds. In other words, like most Horror fans today, I started rooting for the villains. Over time, I developed a strong preference for asphyxiation. Having often held my own breath to the point of nearly passing out to cure hiccups, I can’t imagine a scarier way to die, so I love watching other people pretend to be asphyxiated to death.
In 1994, I joined the World Wide Web shortly after it went public. Three years later, I discovered a web site called Necrobabes, and learned that I’m not the only one who gets off on watching people play dead. I’ve been a highly active member of the community ever since, and collected nearly 40 GB of videos, photos, and artwork. Cinemasphyxia.com is my way of giving back to the community.

- Record a scene using MovAVI.
- Load the recording into Pinnacle Studio Ultimate, remove any irrelevant scenes, then splice the remaining footage together using a “dissolve” effect to create a smooth transition between cuts.
- Export the edited footage to a 1920 x 1080 HD MP4 using h.264 encoding.
- Go through the new MP4 and grab up to 10 carefully selected screenshots.
- Load the MP4 into Handbrake and re-encode the clip to minimize the file size.
- Upload the re-encoded clip to the site and create a new WordPress page for the scene.
