Vancouver Neighbours is an exclusive Daily Hive Vancouver feature in collaboration with award-winning photographer, Matthew Chen, celebrating the diverse individuals that make up our community, one story at a time.
Born in Germany, Marc Riese lives in Vancouver where he is an award-winning hair stylist. When he’s not training or mentoring other stylists, you can find him running or cycling around town for his next triathlon.
“I was very impulsive as a teenager and young adult. My job has taught me a lot of patience. Germans are known to be very direct, I think that was the case. I learned my lessons by being too impulsive many times.”
“I’m proud of my wife, Anna. She’s my partner, my friend, my biggest supporter, my rock, as well as my shoulder to lean on. We have travelled the world, hiked through the desert, moved abroad, and climbed mountains. She is the most heart-filling person in my life.”
