How long have you been growing your current beard?
I have been growing my beard for about 5 years. But I’ve been trying since birth.
When were you last beardless?
The last time I was beardless was about 2009.
Do you trim your beard? How do you trim it?
I do trim my beard because I have curly, crazy hairs. I use an electric beard trimmer I got many years ago for Christmas. I use scissers alot as well, very carefully.
Do you use beard products like oils, if so what brands and products?
I use Beard Friendly Tamer – it’s the only thing that keeps these crazy face hairs under control.
What do you do? Does your beard affect what you do?
I work in the outdoors industry selling outdoor gear. I also write a blog about gear. Having a beard in the outdoors retail world is a given; plus I hate to shave so the more hair on your face the better. It doesn’t hinder me in any way – unless i get something stuck in there and I don’t know while I’m talking to a customer.
