About your host

My journey into shoemaking started when I was working as a freelance photographer in London where I did a shoot for a shoemaker. After that I returned home to Sydney & began the craft of hand making shoes - it's been over 27 years. Great shoes are a transformative experience. The material for me always informs the design, characteristic leather sustainably made for the discerning few.
