Formerly a reporter and editor in Beijing, China and Washington, D.C., Charlie now works as a communications consultant specializing in visual storytelling.
A native of Tallahassee, FL, Charlie somehow managed to wake up in Beijing, China shortly after graduating from university. The city of 18+ million became a second home to him, and it was there he cultivated the skills and passions that consume him today. Charlie, a former journalist and editor, now writes copy and creates visual content for websites and applications. He has worked for nonprofits, for the U.S. federal government as a contractor, and for global companies, including Siemens and Allianz, as a communications consultant. Charlie has a passion for visual storytelling and, in his free time, uses that passion to pursue personal projects that include creative writing, music and video composition, and drawing.
