My Story

Charlie grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Minnesota, and Colorado. While earning his degree at the University of Colorado, he also served as a VISTA volunteer in Omaha, Nebraska for two years.


After spending several years traveling, he settled down in Maine, where he built his own home and eventually founded Partners in Ending Hunger. He served on special commissions for two different Maine Governors and was awarded “Humanitarian of the Year” in New Jersey by Events to Empower Humanity for the work Partners did in that state. At the same time, he led Seminars for Landmark Education for twenty years. Most recently, he worked with a market research firm.


Ever since he can remember, Charlie loved playing games. Outdoor games, board games, card games, sports—you name it, and he’s played it. His sister Peggy, an Olympic athlete, taught him to love competition and the importance of preparation. He started playing casino games in his twenties and still plays today. Doing so has helped him strengthen his discipline and patience muscles, sharpen his math, and expand his logical thinking skills.


In this book, Charlie shares his enjoyment of playing casino games and passes on lots of the knowledge he’s gained over fifty years of playing. During that time, he’s mastered the art of having a great time while playing, whether winning, losing, or breaking even. He always has fun.
