“I am a theatre electrician and lighting designer based in London, having trained in Music and Drama in Liverpool before studying Theatre Electrics at RADA.
“I have had a full beard since 2007, before then having had a number of styles, all short.
“In 2014 I decided to grow out my beard, but cut it back shorter in 2016. My current beard has been growing out since March 2016 with no cutting.
“The decision to grow out my beard was to see if I could grow a longer beard and something for a change. Underneath the beard hiding away are many piercings.”
