Charles grew up near Cleveland, Ohio, and was drawn to design and building at an early age. A trip to Italy in high school (and to Spain in college) solidified his dream to become an Architect.
Charles earned his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology and then moved to Houston in 2011 where he started working in the commercial realm. His portfolio includes projects in medical, higher education, and sports facilities, including Texas A&M’s Kyle Field Redevelopment project. Charles’ design work and close coordination with contractors during construction established and honed his proficiency developing unique and innovative solutions to complex design problems.
Charles completed his graduate degree in the Boston Architectural College’s Distance Master of Architecture Program while continuing to practice, earning a Commendation For Thesis Excellence for his work on affordable custom housing in flood-prone urban environments. His interest in Residential Architecture is a marriage of his desire to create dynamic and personal living spaces and his commitment to sustainability. Charles has subsequently become Registered Architect in Texas, with reciprocity available in all 50 states.
When not at the office or on a job site, Charles enjoys duck hunting and other outdoor pursuits, as well as traveling and watching football and hockey with his wonderful wife.
