I have been in and out the hair industry for the past 14 years. Some times due to my own mental health and wellbeing. I last worked in a salon from 2016 - 2017 where I completed a day's training of Barbering, I was so impressed with all these new skills that I had never seen or heard of before. I took note in my male clientele was increasing and I had one particular client who was battling cancer at the time, Justin was my predominate drive behind wishing to transition from a hairdresser to a barber. Since then I have lived in New Zealand and currently in Australia. Over the past 18 months I have raised funds for different mental health charities and now I am on a mission to physically have 1000 barbers across the globe to raise funds for The Lions Barber Collective in NZ's Mental Health Awareness Week 7th - 13th October .
