“I grew my beard because I hate shaving!!! - and my girl friend wanted me to.

“I first started growing my beard in August 2015 and joined my friends (as a non-competitor) for a beer or two at The World Beard and Moustache Championships in Leogang, Austria in September 2015. And the rest is history...

“I was born in Australia and have been living in the UK for 17 years. I'm currently living between Australia and the Philippines.

I enjoy scuba diving, snowboarding DJing and having a drink.

I plan on competing in the World Beard Championships in Austin Texas in September 2017. See you guys then, we'll have a beer!”
