Charles (Charlie) has been a coworking manager and enthusiast since 2012 when he transplanted to the Bay Area from his humble abode in New England. His favorite aspect of coworking is the constant opportunity to meet new, interesting people and help provide the tools they need to achieve their dreams and aspirations. Another interesting fact about Charlie is that though he shares his name with a popular discount wine, he wants to make it perfectly clear that there is no immediate relation. That being said, if anyone wants to send him free wine, he will happily accept! Things he likes to talk about include: Life, love, happiness and what he’s going to have for lunch.
