About Chuck

Drifting through many unique jobs and adventures after college, Chuck found his direction in life while working as a crew member on a 53-foot sailboat crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Following the trip, he earned a masters degree in communications and professional accreditation and began a series of career moves that have given him great insight into the workings of organizations, from community groups to government organizations and Fortune 500 corporations.

Chuck recently received a Virginia Press Association award for weekly newspaper column writing for his humor column in the Chesterfield Observer, and he has penned frequent humor pieces for publications such as Home Style, WorkMagazine, Richmond Magazine, Richmond Bride, Welcome Inc., and others. His writing ties into his motivational speaking where he tells funny stories of life adventures and shares insights into rediscovering pleasure in life and finding success in work.

In addition, Chuck was a finalist in the Richmond-area 2004 “Last Comedian Standing” competition, sponsored by the Richmond Funny Bone and Q-94.

Chuck also is the author of two books:
– Build Your Castles in the Air: Thoreau’s Inspiring Advice for Success in Business (and Life) in the 21st Century
– Nose-Sucker Thingees, Weeds Whacking Back & Cats in the Bathtub: Does Life Get Any Better?
