David Schachter is a professional generalist, a software engineer, a teacher, and the owner of two slaves, one for 14 years, to whom he is married, and one for three years, married to a former Master. He has studied advertising and mass communications, engineering, and the history and philosophy of science.

Mr. Schachter is a strong believer in individual freedom in a socially aware context, including the freedom to accept the voluntarily relinquished freedom of another. His interest in Ask the Man Who Owns Him is motivated by the dearth of descriptive literature and an over-abundance of prescriptive and fantasy material, which he believes leads novices to unrealistic expectations and a needlessly high rate of failure for Master/slave relationships.
