DoctorBuckles is pink card carrying gay overachiever who wears his heart on his sleeve. Amassing educational degrees is his particular compulsion. He has no less than four degrees – a Bachelors in Art, with special emphasis on life drawing, a Doctor of Education in Counseling Psychology, a Masters in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling, and a Masters in Art Therapy. He also trained at the Stanford University Department of Psychiatry Drug and Alcohol Clinic while launching his career as an advocate and social therapist for gang-affiliated mothers and at-risk youth as well as homeless populations and people with AIDS/HIV. Currently he is a Chemical Dependency Recovery Specialist working with licensed professional populations.
As if overachieving in academics wasn’t enough he has always been an active visual artist and arts advocate, he had a first life in sex work, then a career in pornography doing advertising/marketing, publication design, as well as mainstream corporate direct mail advertising. He recently became active in collaborative environmental and experimental art using a variety of new media (trans media). He has volunteered in many capacities at art institutions and nonprofit organizations including for Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Social Services (GLASS), Outfest (LGBT Film Festival), Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), City of West Hollywood Arts Commission, and Chris Brownlie Hospice.
DoctorBuckles is an adventurer with an avid fascination for human proclivities. One proclivity brought him his name: DoctorBuckles. He laughs when asked what it means because it blurs the boundary between his former sex-work profession, his current professional life, and that of being a gay artist. He says, “It keeps people guessing.” He lives in the hub of Boystown in West Hollywood, California and is active in the gay community.
