Charlie Echeverria

Who I am

Charlie Echeverria, 30 year old beardsman with a passion for animals and volunteering. I work with animal shelters to help spread the word against negative stigmas on breeds, and to stop BSL (breed specific legislation). I’ve enjoyed learning dog behavior to better understand their needs and I strongly believe that everyone deserves a second chance, especially man’s best friend.

What I do

I manage painting, shipping, and receiving for a leather brand company based out of NYC.

Where I live

I live in Lodi, NJ, with my brother and nephew. It’s kind of like Two and a Half Men, except without the drugs.

Why I Beard

In life you grow, you evolve, and you change. I believe in coming into your own as man, and if you’re able to grow a beard, then it means you’re meant to grow one. It’s not a trend for me, it’s a part of me. To be without my beard would be to rewind and I’m not interested in doing that to any part of my life.
