  • Charlie attended the Gathering of the Juggalos and ended up becoming obsessed with the search for the best flavor of Faygo.
  • He once wrote an exhaustive ranking of every beer the Pabst Brewing Company ever produced.
  • Mike Tyson's dog fell asleep on his foot during an interview.


After getting his degree in history, Charlie ended up falling backward into the world of journalism when he started freelancing for Inked Magazine. After writing for Inked, Tattoodo, Time Out, and others, he spent four years as editor-in-chief at Inked. While there, he had the final say on every word in print and online at the magazine, as well as running their popular YouTube channel. During that time, Charlie was able to interview celebrity chefs, some of his favorite bands, numerous artists, and, well, Ozzy Osbourne.
