Charlie’s story

Charlie was born in Lake Placid, New York. He grew in the tiny Persian Gulf Sheikdom of Qatar and was dispatched, at the tender age of 8, to the rather brutal Dickensian world of the British boarding school.

Whilst attending this bleak institution, Charlie was often dispatched to the school’s dank monochromatic basement as punishment for possessing what they deemed “an unorthodox spirit”. During once such basement jaunt Charlie was struck by the realization of his life’s true purpose. It was hardly much of a realization or even a very profound purpose, but at least he had one. Henceforth he would strive to bring a touch of color to all the dull corners of his world.

Shortly thereafter Charlie was “asked” to leave school, was trained by and worked for Rank UK and Virgin TV UK, then hopped off over the pond to Hollywood in Nineteen Hundred & Eighty Eight.

Charlie has over 25 years of experience as an LA colorist. He has a true artist’s eye. During his 17 years as a resident colorist at Rushes LA he earned such accolades as “miracle worker” “lifesaver” and “perfectionist”, but his favorite is simply “Charlie’s a bloody good colorist”.

Charlie works hard to be a natural extension of any creative project he is part of. His old fashioned, hardworking British approach along with his true passion for color and respect for the wonderful subtleties it possesses, have been the driving force behind his long lasting career.

Charlie is well happily married to his wife Rachel and they have two lovely lads Josh (19) and Hunter (17). They all live in a colorful home and there is no basement to be found.

P.S. He is also very familiar with American “color”.
