Marc

Having been a sidekick to many of my parent’s projects around the house, I learned to be resourceful and developed a knack for building and improving the function of things. After studies in biomechanics, human kinetics and certification as a Pedorthic technician, I felt the need for something entirely different. While continuing to work with the family, modifying ready-made footwear, I spent seven years studying and making art at Emily Carr University. There, a diversity of perspectives and practices woke my cultural sensibilities to a level that now keeps me humble. Shoemaking – a practice that has been kept alive by passionate makers – is something I’ve found a lot of meaning in, both in the practical sense of creating functional shoes for those in need, and in the more conceptual areas of culture and fashion. The process requires collaboration, patience and perseverance and has proven to be very rewarding for everyone involved.Creative. Went to Emily Carr. Tinkerer. I have a potty trained cat. Can out Macgyver Macgyver. Detest milk. Once lived on a boat in False Creek. Can rebuild a car engine. Like to go sailing and paint (but not at the same time).
