Charlie currently works as a Hardware Engineer for Astrohaus, creator of the Freewrite, a smart typewriter. He is responsible for engineering design changes, sourcing components/parts, and generally anything that you can touch. Before working at Astrohaus, he worked with jet engines for Rolls-Royce, designing and testing future aircraft propulsion systems.

Charlie always knew he would be an engineer and invented his first product in high school, a revolutionary yo-yo that he licensed to Duncan Yo-Yo’s (and he's still a pretty good yo-yoer to this day). He graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Dayton in 2013. While at Dayton, Charlie had the opportunity to develop technologies for emerging markets while living and working in India and Bolivia. Although he may be a nerd at heart, he loves startups for the broad skill set they foster. In his free time, he takes every opportunity he can to get outdoors, cook, and hone his woodworking skills.
