I am a metallurgical engineer and Technical Director of my own company. Most of my research is for the upstream oil and gas industry. My original goal was to grow a flowing mane, but after a sordid incident at a Billy Squier concert in the mullet stage I cropped my locks. The switch to hirsute chin started with no shave November which kept going year round. On a recent trip to Dubai random people asked to take photos of my beard. It seems that only muftis and ISIS fighters grow decent beards and I didn’t appear to fit either category.
