I decided to start the Beard Chronicles series in 2013 after growing my beard and noticing more and more guys were growing beards as well. Through my love for photography I have been able to give bearded men a platform to share their beard journey story. This series has allowed me to meet and make friends from DC all the way to LA. Learning about different guys beard journeys I have developed an interest in grooming and wellness tips for Black men. Also, from photographing and interviewing for Beard Chronicles I have been able to tap into another creative area: writing. I have written four blogs in the past year topics including: beards in business to mental health wellness in the Black community.
Full Beard Chronicles interviews can be found on my Instagram: @mrr360
