Who I Am

My name is Matthew Thompson. I’m 29 years old.

Where I Live

I currently live in Los Angeles, California.

What I Do

I spend my days working full-time for a construction union in Pasadena, California. My free time is spent with family and friends, staying active/working out, and planning my next art show or tattoo appointment.

Why I Beard

I decided to grow my beard because I feel there’s nothing more natural than a man with a beard. My father once told me, ‘every man should grow out a year-long beard once in his lifetime,’ so I tried it and I fell in love with it. I feel that my well-groomed healthy beard makes a statement about who I am; bold, artistic, dedicated, and relatable.
