More about Nick

I never imagined that I'd be in the men's grooming game. Granted I grew up around skincare products and as a child was the subject of my older sister's "makeovers" more times than I care to admit. So this space is very familiar. But starting a line? Nope.

Fortunately, my education at the United States Naval Academy included a substantial amount of chemistry. This served me well as I started creating concoctions in the kitchen following  Justin's death.

Prior to starting stubble + 'stache, I served over seven years as an officer in the United States Marine Corps. First as an intelligence officer, then in 2007 joining the Corps' newly formed elite special operations unit: MARSOC aka the Marine Raiders. I was a member of the 2nd Raider Battalion until leaving the Marine Corps in late 2011.


I started stubble + 'stache in 2012 with no formal business training. In 2014 I was fortunate to attend the Stanford Ignite – Post-9/11 Veterans program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. There stubble + 'stache grew into the socially minded organization that it is today. I highly recommend this program to any veteran with the entrepreneurial bug. 

Reducing the stigma around mental health is a passion of mine. I've lost far too many Marines to suicide. Having suffered from depression myself, I've testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs about mental health care access for veterans. It is important to realize that we are all fighting battles, and you shouldn't fight yours alone.
