Entrepreneur, day dreamer, traveler, dancer, bag designer, husband, and first time father, Michael Wogu is a man who wears many hats...and often forgets to hang them neatly back on the rack.
After finishing grad-school with an MBA Michael chose a path less trodden and left for China to study Mandarin, and Chinese culture, while working as an English teacher and Dance instructor. Upon his return to the US, he took the reigns of his school term project turned boutique travel goods line MBARQGO, and began the grueling yet fulfilling road of turning his entrepreneurial ambitions into reality. His pieces have been seen on the likes of T-Pain, Nickie Minaj, Scooter Braun, and Travie McCoy to name a few.
“I have bag ideas that fly in and out of my head all day long, but the magic happens when those shapes and silhouettes somehow cross paths with a sense of meaning, a story, a reason why. This is where the passion engine starts for me.”
