Roke is one of those puppies that has always had an affinity for boots. Not the annoying kind that hijacks your shoes, taking them away to gnaw on them and leaves them absolutely demolished behind the couch for you to find the instant you're heading to IML, but the loving kind that will slobber on them until they shine like a freshly loved bone. Seth has been an active part of the bootblacking community working in such places as IPAHW, ILW and his partners bedroom (or his Daddy bears, he ain't picky) and is well loved for his "waddling Corgi cuteness" amongst the people of the Leather community. As an Agent of ASH! he is a force to be reckoned with and a guy to be reckoned with. In his local community he can be found working for Iowa Leather Weekend and International Pup and Handler Weekend as Head Bootblack/Bootblack coordinator. When not at Leather events he is spending time with his local Leather family, Partner and Daddy bear as well as saving the worlds of Final Fantasy.

During the day he swings from scaffold and crawls across roof lines. He stands for quality and integrity. He’s your friendly neighborhood Sider-man. During the night you can find him servicing his community... (Not like that). He enjoys working on fundraisers for local charities such as Colorado Leather Fest, Denver boys of Leather, and Leather Colorado Foundation. His favorite thing to do on an given night is shine a pair of boots while laughing and playing with the local Leather crowd. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of Bootblacking with anybody with a desire to learn. He got his start five years ago on a living room floor learning to care for a jacket and did his first public blacking in 2014 at Exile Fetish Ball in Colorado. He is a firm believer in follow your heart, trust your sole. Coming to you from Aurora, Colorado I present to you the Colorado Bootblack 2017 Sir William, your Bootblack Knight.
