Originally from West Hartford CT, Charles moved to New York City back in 2006 when he was 18 years old to study Film / TV at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. Since then, Charles has lived everywhere, from the West Village to the Upper West Side, but today, he calls Brooklyn his home. In recent years, Charles has turned his focus to the New Development Luxury Market all over NYC, but he has specifically honed his sights on this market as it pertains to Brooklyn. His fascination with the evolution of Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Downtown Brooklyn, as well the surrounding areas has lead to an unparalleled knowledge of the ever-evolving/developing Luxury Market. Prior to working at REAL NY Charles was the guitarist for The Drums, a successful indie rock band and as a result, traveled all over the world. Charles also acted as a Tour Manager for the late Ralphie May, which saw him living out of a tour bus as they traversed the United States. Even though Charles has been all over the world, he considers Brooklyn his home base. There is nothing more exciting to Charles then showing people around his city.
