Ryan Cullen has a classic, old-school barber shop here in Peoria and last January he shaved my beard off and we’ll be doing that again after the new year. I stopped by his shop yesterday to discuss that eventuality and then remembered that I had to get a photo of someone for this week’s MBIP People Of Peoria series. So I got a shot of Ryan and asked him the Peoria Favorite Five questions and you can see all of that below. See how this works?
People Of Peoria: Person Number Six—Ryan
You see a lot of beards in your business, in your opinion, who has the best beard in Peoria? I think it’s Aaron McCall from CrossFit North Peoria. He actually got a makeover on Good Morning America a couple of years ago, but he’s grown the beard back again!
Name a person from Peoria who has inspired you: I’ll go with Sam Kinison for his honesty and humor.
Who’s your favorite Peoria person? That would be my grandfather, Gary Cullen. He was a Peoria Police Officer for over 30 years and he’s been an inspiration in my life and has been so supportive of everything I’ve done.
What’s your favorite curse word? Dang-a-lang. I don’t curse very often!
Who would you like to give a shout-out to? I’ll give it to Whiskey City Architectural Salvage! We’ve been very supportive of each other through the years.
The Official People Of Peoria Shout-Out: Here’s to you Whiskey City Architectural Salvage, someone out there loves you!
