About

Who am I?

I'm a dude with a dope ass beard, that's who I am. 2 years ago, I began my journey when I crossed paths with a patch of daisies. I picked those daisies and gently placed them in my beard. Little did I know, those daisies would some day change my life. 

Day 1
Day 1

I started thinking...what else can I stick in this thing? (That's what she said)

If you haven't seen my work, please check some of it out below. You'll see that I've got a pretty unique approach to the beard game. I try to keep it fresh and lighthearted. And silly. And dangerous. And sexy.

Why I Need You Guys:

Recently, it's been getting more attention and people have been requesting that I do certain themes for them. I would absolutely love to fulfill all those requests but as you can guess, every photo costs money and they can get pretty time consuming.

Happy Bearday!
Happy Bearday!

The thing is, I know I'm on to something. In a little over 3 months I've garnered several thousands of followers on social media and have been written about on BuzzFeed and MTV. All of this was accomplished with just a simple idea and a supporting girlfriend with a camera. 

People are really liking what I'm doing. And personally, I've never felt so good about a project. Every holiday, I wake up with a huge grin, and an enormous sense of optimism.

So I need to keep going. I genuinely believe that this thing can become huge, on a national level. You know what, maybe even on a global level. I bet all of Europe would go nuts over this shit. 

But to continue, I'm going to need funding. And to evolve and grow as an artist, everything needs to be elevated. I need a way to increase my production value, both creatively, and in the quality of the photo. Every photo has been made in or around my apartment standing in front of something that happens to match or laying down on the grass and throwing in a couple of relevant ornaments. I can only imagine what access to more creative freedom would do for me.

So I'm coming to you. Together, I know we can pull this off. And I know it will be awesome. 

What are you funding?

You are letting me continue my quest to change the beard game forever.

I want to make a high quality Coffee Table Book with a different holiday or themed decoration on every page. 

Happy New Beard!

Inherent in making this book are costs. Here's a brief look at what I mean. 

Production - These will unquestionably be the biggest costs. I want to create some of the most unforgettable photos in the history of beards. To do that properly, it's going to require some serious resources. A coffee table book will cost me money in acquiring necessary equipment, paying my photographer, editing, printing, and publishing. 

Creative -  I'll need to hire an art department to collaborate with me in handling the ornament shopping and the creative decorating.  I also want to have a few more bearded gentlemen so my face doesn't get super annoying. 

Beardependence Day!
Beardependence Day!

The more money I get, the more photos I can take, and the CRAZIER these photos can become.  We live in America, people. So with ample funding, there's really nothing that can't be done. What do you guys want to see? I'll make it happen. 

Trust me, I'll make my next round of photos unforgettable if I can get the funding to do so. 

Risks and challenges

Fortunately for me, the execution of this is fairly simple.

I have to decorate my beard, and get my photo taken. Obviously there are risks and challenges with everything in life. I could have some difficulty finding the right publishers. I could go batshit crazy looking for the right decoration pieces. It could take some time finding capable printers to print books under budget.

I can tell you that the risks aren't likely to become realities. It all comes down to being resourceful, organized, and driven. And I'm all of those things.

The only thing in my way is funding. And that's what this Kickstarter is for.

I LOVE YOU ALL. HELP ME DO THIS.
