Elvis Strange grew up a small forlorn homeless child with aspirations of becoming an astronaut and a President one day. Unfortunately things have not worked out quite that well yet. Oh wait, sorry, I was thinking about someone else anyways!
I’m really happy about coming back and judging the LA Beard and Mustache competition for the second time. Last year had some great competitors and judging it was a lot harder than I thought it would be. They asked me to tell you something about me, which is one of the things I do better than anybody.
I made my way up to LA in the late 90’s and somehow ended up working on a film set. Here I found my calling. At this point I changed careers and jumped feet first into the film industry. I have been making my living as a Production Designer or Art Director in the entertainment industry ever since. This basically means I design and create the look and sets of films, tv shows, commercials, music videos and still shoots. I have been doing this for about 10 years and absolutely love it.
Generally I don’t have a lot of free time, but when I do I am usually writing or playing music, and like a stripper to meth, tattoos are my close friend. Getting tattooed is how I relax and relieve stress after a job. Now I wouldn’t say I am a party animal, I just live like a rock star. Underneath it all I am pretty much just a normal cat, I like to consider myself the responsible freak. I am comfortable in my own skin and I just like being me and looking the way I do. I enjoy being balls out with everything I do. Here I am, this is me, if you like it fine, if you don’t, whatever!
