Charles is a Certified International Tour Manager.

Charles took his first trip to Italy in 2004 with family, and instantly fell in love! This inspired him to start leading student trips around the world for 13 years. From England to China and most countries in between, he shared the culture, history, art, and food with students and adults from his town in Colorado. He loves to see the excitement and awe on travelers faces when they see places they have only read about or seen in the movies and television. Walking someone through the Roman Colosseum for the first time and watching the look of wonder on their faces is priceless to him.

In 2017, Charles "retired" from over 20 years of teaching world, european, and art history. He decided to permanently move his teaching outside and make "the world his classroom!" He is also an accomplished Ironman triathlete and lover of all things cycling. His trip of a lifetime would be to ride and follow the Tour De France for all three weeks! He loves to travel and go on outdoor adventures with his wife and two teenage daughters. They also spend a lot of time in their mountain cabin in the Rocky Mountains skiing, hiking, kayaking and paddle boarding.

Charles would love to have you join him on one of his Story Land & Sea trips. He will regale you with stories and anecdotes gleaned from his teaching and traveling experience as he guides you and takes care of you on your journey of a lifetime!

Charles is a well seasoned traveler, and it shows!
