Tell us a little bit about yourself

My name is Chuck.  I am a dad and a husband.  Prior to seeking my degree in clinical counseling, I held many different jobs: high school English teacher, newspaper editor, driving instructor, dance instructor, ice cream truck driver, and telemarketer.  In my spare time I like to write and play games.

I often get dressed in the dark, and have arrived at work with my shirt on backwards or inside out.

What is your favorite comfort food?

I enjoy Indian food and lasagna.
