Jhay's story began in 1988 under the watchful eye of Bob Downe at Speedy Shoe Service in Parramatta. In a short 6 month term he learned the importance of customer service as well as shop management.

Having had the taste of the job Jhay entered an apprenticeship at Falkingham Shoe Service in Bondi Junction where he worked under highly regarded industry leaders Frank Pinto and Rocco Reale. Here he was instilled with a high standard and pride in the job he did whilst being handed down the traditional methods of the cobbler.

Whilst growing his DJ career Jhay continued to work part time in several repair shops and this moving around gave him insight in to several respected tradesman's methods, learning different ways and methods and gaining the ability to work them together to get a perfect result.

With his new skills Jhay's career quickly progressed to a full time job at Chifley Shoeworx where after a couple of years on the job he was repairing shoes for accounts with Gucci, Ferragamo, Prada, Louis Vuitton and RM Williams. Jhay then moved to Carl's Shoe Repair where he repaired mainly high end shoes for customers such as Gay Waterhouse, Mike Munro and various other celebrities.
Jhay's last position in Sydney would see him running a very busy store in Town Hall Railway Station with two repairers working under him.

In 2003 Jhay relocated to Canberra and purchased Dickson Shoe Repairs which he would soon rename as Jhay The Cobbler. Jhay lives close by in Ainslie with his beautiful wife and son and enjoys providing an unrivalled service to Canberra and the surrounding community.

With Jhay's boutique experience and love for the trade he offers the service both you and your shoes deserve.
