Event Engineer Skyla

Skyla is your friendly neighborhood mermaid. She discovered Fetlife in 2012 while Googling, “people turned on by fear”. The rest is history. Throughout her time in the scene, she has been involved with many organizations and events. A common theme for her throughout her event planning life, is the love for making people feel included and that they matter. Skyla plans events and engineers learning experiences in her vanilla & kinky life.

She got her start in kinky event planning with the New England Dungeon Society as Secretary and Events Chair for 2 years. She planned parties, workshops, and social outings.  She continued to develop the organization and expanded its reach to new members. One of her favorite roles was running new member orientation, helping people feel  welcome and demystifying new situations is what she lives for.

Skyla went on to serve as the Volunteer Coordinator for Dark Odyssey (Summer Camp, Fusion & Winter Fire) and the Ion Coordinator (Fusion and Summer Camp) for 3 years.  She redesigned the entire volunteer program from the ground up, laying the groundwork for more appreciation for volunteers, compensation that was equitable and dynamic spreadsheets to tie it all together.  She has been a volunteer for Bound in Boston since 2012, and has been on staff for the last 2 years, now co-producing the event and coordinating programming.

In addition to her official roles, she creates & designs the program booklet and developed & delivered an entirely online consent response training for the consent team. When she isn’t behind the scenes at events, she enjoys attending community events and helping out where she is needed.  She is a self-professed cat lady and has always had a soft spot in her heart for animals of all kinds.  Skyla loves reading true-crime novels, dancing with her flow wand, and drinking the largest iced coffee available.
