Charlie joined Maine Public at the start of 2021, after spending more than seven years writing for newspapers in Maine and Vermont. 

Charlie most recently worked as a reporter for the Bangor Daily News, covering health care and general news across Bangor and much of the rest of state. He spent most of 2020 documenting how COVID-19 was spreading across Maine, affecting everyone from nursing home residents to health care workers to jail inmates to manufacturers. 

Charlie has worked for two other newspapers in Maine  — the Kennebec Journal in Augusta and the Ellsworth American — and Seven Days, a weekly paper in Burlington, Vermont. His stories have received top honors from the Maine Press Association, New England Newspaper & Press Association and National Newspaper Association.

Charlie has a bachelor's degree in English from Colby College and a master's in journalism from Columbia University. He taught English in China for two years with the U.S. Peace Corps and now lives in Bethel with his partner, their two cats and a dog.
