About Charles

I am a native New Yorker with a background in film and music journalism. I have contributed to various outlets and publications and became staff writer for Other Music, Under the Radar Magazine, and Composer Magazine.

Recognizing the shift in trend towards podcasts as a mode of media consumption, and a lively platform for cultural analysis and commentary from an editorial perspective, I have begun to focus my energies into this medium. I find podcasting allows for added dimensionality above the typical print article or essay, animating the topics and subject matters publishers and programmers aim to spotlight and investigate.

I have created two podcasts that focus on the music for film and television – the newly launched Composer Magazine Podcast and Check the Score for Under the Radar Magazine. For both shows, I have executed each stage of production on my own, from conception, to recording artist interviews remotely and on location, to narrating and completely editing a 45 minute - 1 hour episode ready for publishing.

Through this experience, I have acquired a skill in identifying subjects with an interesting story and taking the raw audio material of its contents and shaping it into an engaging narrative, enhanced by the elements of music and ambient sound that can bring a story to life. I would like to put these skills to use in assisting other journalists and programmers to do the same with their subjects and stories of interest.
