Charlie grew up in Newport Beach, California, where the influence of his father and family throughout his childhood led to a natural affinity for water sports.
He started sailing at the age of 8. From there, he progressed through the junior, high school, and collegiate sailing ranks in the United States, eventually choosing to campaign for the 2016 Olympics in the Laser class after graduating from Georgetown University.
He is keen to take advantage of this opportunity and hopeful that hard work and experience will help him accomplish his goal of competing at the Olympics and winning a medal.
