Ernie Markle has an educational background in Philosophy and Spanish, and before he became a full-time pipe maker he used to work in finance. Ernie became curious about pipe making after spending many hours viewing thousands of custom pipes online. 

He became intrigued with the idea of making pipes and two years later he made his first pipe. Months later he attended the Chicago pipe show in the hope of receiving helpful critique on his pipes.

Ernie Markle has spent time with Brad Pohlmann and Jeff Gracik of J. Alan Pipes who made him gain confidence in his abilities within pipe making.
