With a background supporting elected officials, candidates, and filmmakers alike, Charlie primarily works at the intersection of communications, arts, and politics and brings a creativity that is obvious in both his graphic design and strategic approach.
Prior to joining the March on Washington Film Festival team full time in 2016, Charlie worked as a Campaign Coordinator at Picture Motion where he was able to couple his creative roots and progressive passions in supporting the creation and execution of issue impact campaigns for various award-winning films. These films include Michael Moore’s Where to Invade Next, Leonardo DiCaprio’s environmental documentary Before the Flood, and the EPIX original series America Divided, produced by Shonda Rhimes, Common, and Norman Lear. Having supported a marquee list of films, Charlie can wax poetic across a plethora of issues, with a particular passion for criminal justice reform, gun control, LGBTQ rights, and immigration reform. Whether it be campaign strategy, graphic design, event production, or management of social media, Charlie always delivers superior results.
Previously, Charlie worked for the National Conference of Democratic Mayors to help guide national coordination and outreach efforts. Additionally, he supported the research and communication teams for Greg Orman’s 2014 Independent U.S. Senate Campaign in Kansas. While serving as a Fellow for The Raben Group in 2015, he assisted the March on Washington Film Festival and produced marketing and campaign materials for the firm and clients, alike.
Charlie has guest-lectured at George Washington University and Boston University where he assisted a course focused on creating social impact through film. Charlie is a graduate of Boston University where he earned a degree in Political Science and spent his final semesters abroad interning and studying in London, England, and Washington, D.C. with the Labour Party and The Raben Group, respectively.
