Work Experience

The Beard

Creator and author of the Twitter stream @leeclowsbeard, a daily offering of advertising crumbs (supposedly) from the beard of Lee Clow. Started in 2009, the account caught the attention of the real Lee Clow, who had his team produce a companion book and iOS app.

As The Man himself stated in his forward to the tome, “It was stuff that I would have said...In fact, I’ve approved them coming from my beard.”
