About Ambrosio: My Vanity Pages
(ME! ME! ME!)

  The Monk"Tranquility reigned upon his smooth unwrinkled forehead; and content, expressed upon every feature, seemed to announce the man equally unacquainted with cares and crimes. He bowed himself with humility to the audience. Still there was a certain severity in his look and manner that inspired universal awe, a few could sustain the glance of his eye, at once fiery and penetrating. Such was Ambrosio, abbot of the Capuchins, and surnamed The man of holiness."

- M. G. Lewis
The Monk

My Self Absorbed Autobiography

Ambrosio's scene name originates from the title character of The Monk, a classic Gothic novel by M. G. Lewis about an evil cleric.   In his public life, Ambrosio is a single white male in his late forties with a base of operations in San Antonio, TX. He's been in the BDSM scene since approximately 1994 and active since about 1995.   He's known as sensual top with dominant tendencies but he also practices more heavy play.   He co-founded SAS/M in 1996 with his friend Cliff.   Currently he is a member of GWNN, SAS/M, APEX, SAADE, and several other groups.   He also attended the Louisville Munch regularly and served as substitute Munch host on occasion. He served on the board of KUFS from June 2005 to November 2006. He volunteers for local groups, teaches BDSM classes, and maintains the award seeking Ambrosio's BDSM Site.

In 2006, Ambrosio won the title of the Ohio Leather Fest King at OLF IX --- the final OLF.   As such, he remains the last reigning OLF monarch.   He credits his victory to his good looks, his quick wit, and the fact that none of the other contestants or judges showed up for the contest.

In 2013 the Board of GWNN (the Group With No Name) in Austin, honored him by establishing an annual scholarship in his name: the Ambrosio-EvilMonk GWNN BASH Scholarship.

Hobbies include reading, writing, acting, web development, ballroom dancing, and Safe, Sane, and Consensual BDSM.

My Scholarship

In 2013 the Board of GWNN (the Group With No Name) in Austin, honored me by establishing an annual scholarship in my name: Ambrosio-EvilMonk GWNN BASH Scholarship. Here's an explanation from GWNN:

Each year we will award at least 1 up to 4 free bash tickets in his name. Each year we will try to find someone(s) that cannot afford the bash ticket but still really deserves to come.

For 2013 we welcomed Kenny and Rachel, a long-time GWNN couple that have been unable to do much of anything for more than a year now due to Kenny suffering a very serious head injury. We also welcomed Robert "The Music Man" who played all the party music for GWNN and for SAS/M for many years. Robert had a stroke last fall and we all miss seeing him at the parties. It was a wonderful feeling to contact Kenny and Rachel and Robert and invite them to be our guests at the BASH as a way to honor one of the most special, kind, intelligent and supportive community people I have ever had the pleasure to know.

The Ambrosio-Evil Monk Scholarship will continue and more community members will benefit from it in the future.

I appreciate the great honor! The community has given me a lot and I try my best to help where I can. I'll try not to let it go to my head.

Dropping Names: Some of My Scene Friends

When one bases one's identity on a lifestyle, isn't one confusing the artifice with it's creator, the house with it's occupant, the facade with the feeling self? A house without an occupant is not a home, a life-style without a self is not a person.

Favorite Femme Fatale Performances

Some of my favorite performances have been from women playing the role of a femme fatale. That type of role entails the elements of confidence, wit, a mixture of gentleness and sadism, overt unrestrained sensuality, subtle sexuality, and -- very often but not essentially -- great physical beauty.

  • Bridgette Helm as the Robot in Metropolis

  • Lousie Brooks as Lulu in Pandora's Box

  • Ludmilla Tchérina as Giulietta walking down the Venice stairs in Michael Powell's The Tales of Hoffman

  • Julia Migenes-Johnson dancing, singing, and acting as Carmen in Carmen

  • Michelle Pfeiffer as the Catwoman in Batman Returns

  • Alice Krieg as Alma Mobley in Ghost Story

  • Glen Close as the Marquise de Merteuil in Dangerous Liaisons

  • Alice Krieg as the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact

  • Aimee McCormick as one of the evil daughters in the Vortex Repertory Company (Austin, TX) production of King Lear
