Dylan Peet – Volunteer Coordinator
Zach Van Pelt – Program Director
Zach currently serves on the board and as Volunteer Chair for the Young Leathermen’s Discussion Group. He identifies as a submissive and has been active in the kink and leather community for the past two years. As an introvert, Zach has always found that volunteering helps him feel more connected in the community, and hopes to help others feel that they also have a place in the kink and leather world. In addition to kink, Zach’s major passion is classical music. He has a Doctorate in Tuba Performance and regularly performs around the Bay Area. A native of Southern California, Zach has been living in the Bay Area since 2014.
Kris Yung – Associate Board Member – Marketing
Kris is new to active participation in the kink community after over a decade of independent investigation and sporadic experimentation. He hopes by participating in YLDG to build community and to increase access to information to help kinksters enjoy their play more. He also hopes to connect to the community more deeply himself. Kris identifies as a boy, but is more interested in how being a boy can provide happiness to the man or men he serves.
Outside of the playroom, Kris is an avid hobby cook, interested in religions and esoteric traditions as different languages of the human psyche, listens to deep and future house, opera and classical music.
