Reive was born in Sydney, Australia but, but his parents moved to the BC's lower mainland when he was only two months old, thus denying Reive an Australian accent and an incredible sex life during high school. He's still bitter about it. Since his teen years Reive has organized events for various groups he has been involved with, including several charity fundraisers. He is also known for throwing the occasional house party. Reive discovered Vancouver's kink scene in 1993, and hasn't looked back since. He is a co-founder of BIO, and as such has been organizing events, conferences and workshops for the local SM community since July of 2000.
