I am an Irish writer, blogger, published author, public speaker and MENSAN. I am also a retired bodybuilder, National Powerlifting Champion and record holder. I grew my first beard at fifteen. In the forty years since then I have rarely been without a beard. But I did not become a serious beardsman until August 2016. I grew a yeard from then until August 2017. I now wear the Garibaldi style.
