Charlie picked up a video camera as a young boy and has been behind the lens ever since. He is part of our video team where he shoots, edits, animates, and produces – wherever client stories take him.
Charlie’s portfolio includes a mix of commercials, web videos, PSAs, documentaries, and social content. Many featuring celebrity spokespersons like Dorothy Hamill, Christina Applegate, Anthony Anderson and many more. He even has an IMDb page, thanks to a documentary he shot & edited, Wendover: Out on the Edge, which aired on PBS.
Charlie grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and received his bachelor’s degree in Film and Media Arts from The University of Utah. Growing up in Salt Lake City gave him the opportunity to attend The Sundance Film Festivals which taught him many tips and tricks from the pros. Early on, he thought about filmmaking in Hollywood, but after meeting his Atlanta-based wife in college, he became an East Coast convert, and became committed to the world of video advertising.
Charlie is married with 4 kids (3 girls and a boy) and resides in Marietta, where he is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He speaks fluent Portuguese after two years living in Southern Brazil and enjoys sports, movies, being outdoors, and being a youth leader to teens every week.
Charlie finds that what attracts him the most to a project is when he can work collaboratively and in synergy with all arms of production. Those exciting occasions where a team can pull together, shape, hone and refine the creative vision is something he truly lives for – and he tries to have as much fun as possible in the process!
