Resume

Please note: this resume is by no means complete. I have quite a lot of things to add, however, it will give you a good overall idea of my experience.

Short bio

Leland Carina is Ms Oregon State Leather 2018. She’s also a photographer, writer, activist, and designer. She serves our community as Co-Editor in Chief of Leatherati.com and is a member of Bad Girls PDX. She is the Founder of the current San Francisco girls of Leather and has assisted girls of Leather organizations to form and flourish in various cities across the country.

She was honored to be a Leather Marshal for the 2012 San Francisco Pride Parade. She was also given the honor of being Woman of the Year for both the Bay Area Leather Alliance and Portland’s Rose and Thorn Awards. While in San Francisco, Leland worked as a graphic designer at Kink.com for four years, which is a very central hub of the sex-positive community. She currently lives in Portland, Oregon.
