Charles was born in Glendale, California. At a very young age he was fascinated with how things worked and enjoyed watching others build and create. He joined the Cub Scouts and learned knot tying, wood working, and developed a love of the outdoors while earning his badges. By the age of thirteen he discovered a joy in performing sound effects and voice impersonations. With this new interest he was trained in operating sound systems for school functions, church services, special events and choir cantatas.
Through his Jr. High and High School years, Charles took classes in art, photography, architecture, and mechanical design. He displayed his artistic talents through his work on the yearbook staff and in the performing arts. During the graduation ceremony he presented a slide show compilation from his classmate's experiences in high school.
After high school Charles attended Platt College for graphic design. A few years later he pursued an opportunity to work in the textile design industry. As the world of digital media technology was advancing, he furthered his education in website design and computer graphics from The Learning Tree University.
Charles had continued to hone his skills in wood working and completed many commissioned works. He found himself with continuous word of mouth jobs utilizing all of his creative and technical skills. He worked freelance as an event photographer, videographer, disc jockey, and closed circuit television operator for large venue events.
Finding true love, he married his best friend Katie outdoors in front of a beautiful tropical garden lake. It was an artistic match as together they could imagine, create, build, and paint whatever project was needed or dreamed up. They had always had a feeling and longing to work together and started two companies in art instruction and media production. Charles graduated from Colorado Technical University with an Associate of Science degree in Business Administration and earned a Video Design Certificate from the Digital Workshop Center in Fort Collins.
