After several years of playing and composing music with synthesizers, Charlie began creating soundtracks for early computer-generated videos. From there he animated a CGI music video called Ralph the Punk, which was shown at festivals around the world.

First Comics was in need of an artist to replace Mike Saenz after he originated Shatter, the first computer-generated comic book. Charlie fit the bill and completed the run of the book. After that, Charlie became the animator/designer on a three person team that made the first animated John Madden Football computer game in 1990. He continued making games until 1995 after he worked as a concept artist for a U2 digital project.

He started his one man design firm, Burning City, Inc. and began doing web-related design work. He continued his graphic career by producing theatrical posters and doing theater design work in Chicago. He contributed to the world premieres of William Gibson's Burning Chrome and Clive Barker's In The Flesh.

After a stint as a business strategist at a user experience firm and a creative director at a software development company, Charlie went back to his roots and is now working on a graphic novel. He also co-founded the firm, The Devil's Candy Store, with Denise Dorman. It is a virtual studio of seasoned illustration pros built to provide concept art for the gaming, movie, and toy industries.
