Shy Insurance Man Grows A Beard, And It Turns His Life Upside Down.
Pugh's transformation allowed him to become the V05 ambassador the NME Awards and more.
He's got 190,000 followers on Instagram so far, and that number is bound to grow, and he owes it all to his decision to get healthy again. He just never knew that he would have become such a sensation so quickly.
At the time that he chose to change his life, he also decided to start a band with a buddy.
With his friend, Calum Ross, the Magic Rooster Brothers, which was a folk country band, was born. In that process, his barber, Joel, suggested that if he was going to play the guitar, he needed a beard, hence, how he ended up growing it out.
Pugh has since gone on to become quite a successful model and is making a name for himself.
Aside from appearing on the pages of Hunger magazine, and GQ, he has also worked with the renowned soccer player and model, David Beckham. He's now the ambassador for House 99, which is Beckham's male grooming brand.
For Pugh, getting in shape was not something he had to debate, and this is how he did it.
For starters, he cut takeout food completely from his diet. He also quit his desk job, which was limiting his ability to burn calories. After not sitting for 10 hours a day, Pugh noticed a difference. But his weight loss took nearly five years and that involved walking and being active.
After he became active, he joined Instagram to attract others to his band as well as his looks.
This former shy kid got a huge boost in confidence after he became the face of Nathan Palmer's 2015 collection. He was also part of the Red Hot Photography project, which helped his career take off. After years of working in financing, he's happy to be traveling the world and working with creative folks.
