Projects by Industry
Marketing

In his experience writing and editing for marketing clients, Chas has produced a best-selling book released through McGraw-Hill, articles in Forbes and Huffington Post, a TEDx talk, and countless blogs and articles, just to name some highlights. His marketing experience focuses on social business theory and branding for a digital age.

Music

For Chas, music has been a sort of guiding force and catalyst for his professional career. He grew up reading the histories of classic albums in Rolling Stone, Spin, and Guitar World and had steeled himself from a young age to contribute to this world in some manner. His experience in music writing and editing has led to editing work on several music-themed novels, as well as a autobiographical history of one of the most storied recording studios of the late 60s and 70s. As a music writer, Chas has written album reviews, press releases, and ebooks on the music industry.

Self Help

One of the great privileges of life is learning both from our successes and failures and then passing that information on to others. Personal betterment can sometimes be a daunting task, but through a commitment to change and the development of a program designed to make moving mountains feel like kicking rocks, improvement can come. Chas's experience in this field has taught him that we're all seeking to learn new things and discover our hidden strengths. A well-written self-help project is like having a good friend or mentor at your side.
