As a native of Bangor, Charles earned his undergraduate degree in Social Work from the University of Maine in Orono. After working as a CPhT and Trainer for Hannaford Pharmacy for 11 years, Charles is currently the IT & Marketing Manager for BangorHousing where he has been since 2013.
Outside of BangorHousing, Charles is an active member of the Steering Comittee, Chair of the Marketing Committee for BRLI, as well as the membership committee for the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce. He is a member of the Computer Sciences Advisory Board for Eastern Maine Community College, and tries to volunteer with local organizations like United Way of Eastern Maine and Literacy Volunteers of Bangor as often as he can find the time. As of June 2019 Charles sits on the Town Council for the Town of Hermon.
Charles is a self-proclaimed film geek, tech geek, and food connoisseur. Though he claims to be “indoorsy” you can usually find him playing volleyball, golf, or making sure his wife Nicole and rescue Pitbull are soaking in as much sun as they can.
Though not a fan of the “who would you have coffee with” question, Charles wouldn’t pass up a chance to meet Joss Whedon for lunch, or even a good snack.
On what brought him to the SC: “BRLI effected my life in such a way that I really didn’t want to see it end. To care so much about the program, and be surrounded by others who care just as much, is an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. They always tell you BRLI will introduce you to 20+ people who will have a positive impact on your life, I get to repeat that process every year.”
