Charles's journey as a writer and storyteller started in childhood, with a love of the science fiction movies "Aliens," and "Terminator," which inspired him to create his own tales. As an adult he attended Rutgers University where he learned about the craft of journalism and writing. His time there honed his hobby of fiction writing into a refined appreciation of crisp and to the point prose. Long after graduating he still keeps an up to date copy of the Associated Press Stylebook, which he has been known to check even when posting to his personal social media accounts.

Since graduating, Charles has had a varied work history in several different industries, though all related to business and logistics. He has been certified as a specialist in pet nutrition for both dogs and cats, and has helped out with several of his local animal rescues. Charles has indepth knowledge of various consumer technologies and has a history working with cellular contracts and sales.

Charles now hopes to turn his hobby of fiction writing into a career of non-fiction freelancing where he can grow and share his varied interests.
