Charlie is a purveyor of attention. He helps growing brands stand out from the clutter.
He opened the doors at Curve Detroit Marketing Strategy & Creative Design after being thrown out of several well respected ad agencies. As a marketing strategist and creative director, he has delivered blue sky ideas and bottom line results for blue chip national clients and budding challenger brands.
Charlie is the cofounder of Moka Boka, a new subscription box delivering one-of-a-kind stories and adventures to kids. Along with a handful of cool friends, he produces the TEDxDetroit conference which attracts more than 3,000 attendees from around the Great Lakes each year.
When he’s not building brands, you’ll find Charlie inspiring, educating and entertaining business audiences with his lively keynote presentations on marketing, innovation and motivation. Last year, he was named the second best PowerPoint Karaoke presenter in the world. This year, he hopes to win something that people have actually heard of.
Charlie is happily married to his unhappily married wife, Elena. They have two young sons with wild imaginations and boundless energy and one lazy cat.
