My Personal Bio

Oh, hello there! I didn’t see you come in.

I’m Charlie. I’m a dad living in Austin, TX, with my lovely wife and two daughters (soon to be three!) They are awesome, hilarious, and so loving. They’re the best.

There’s more to my story, but the stuff that’s most interesting to people tends to be related to the books I’ve written, or the great people I've worked with. So I’m leaving the rest of that stuff out for now.
