I currently reside just outside Doylestown, PA and I am apprenticing with Perry Ercolino, one of the few bespoke shoemakers in this country. For the last five years, I was on the staff of a small inner-city congregation in Flint, MI (Christ Community Baptist Church) and for the last 3 years, the part-owner of a little food establishment in Flint known as The Flint Crepe Company. Within the span of about 4 months, I sold my portion of the Flint Crepe Company to my business partner, and the church closed it's doors. This turn of events spurred me to dive headlong into shoemaking, which I've been learning about for the last two years. I moved to Doylestown in April and am very much enjoying my new pursuit.
