What's Your Motto / What Do You Stand For? All or nothing.
Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (What Is Your Story? What Inspired You To Grow A Beard? Who Is The Man Behind The Beard?) Always could grow a beard and would let it grow and then cut a year later, but then I split with my daughter's mother and it wasn't pretty. At the time I had a short beard and my daughter only knew me with the beard, so after a long custody battle it took 4 months to see her and I just kept it because that is what she knew. She loves beards and she's 5, she says to keep letting it get longer so that's what I do. Bearded dads do it better.

Since the end of 2017 I have been building my own Brand/Label, which is very close in to my heart. Of course it is not easy and also very difficult to move forward, but I don't care. Yes, I am convinced of that. You can find it under @Ratsbeard at Instagram, so just remember, at some point no one will be able to miss it anymore.
What's Your Motto / What Do You Stand For? Stay harder than life.
Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (What Is Your Story? What Inspired You To Grow A Beard? Who Is The Man Behind The Beard?) Why me, good ask... I have been wearing Beard since I was 16 and since 2011 full-beard sometimes longer and sometimes shorter. Since 2014 actually ever longer full-beard, except I have it with the cut fucked up, then it had to be shorter times. Beard is for me an attitude to life and not a fashion. Whether I am Mean beard, I don't know.

Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (What Is Your Story? What Inspired You To Grow A Beard? Who Is The Man Behind The Beard?) Now listen, I'm a Maori/ Latin hybrid. I know I do not have the biggest longest eye popping beard but this beard serves a purpose. It is a beard that reminds me to honor those that passed before me. Every day I honor my father who passed from cancer and mother in law who passed from cancer. My beard is like Rocky, always standing toward the adversaries of the beard competitions, win or lose. You will remember me.
