It’s always a challenge to translate what I do as a shoemaker into writing, and consequently I’m pretty media shy, but hey!  It’s still a bit of a thrill to see your name in print!  Big thanks to Avenue Magazine and Jen Cameron for helping to spread the word about #Ryaton.  #brawler #shoemaking #cordwainer #madeincanada #smallbatch #shoes
