In the multifaceted landscape of technology and finance, Charles’ journey spanning two decades has been marked by strategic leadership, innovative financial solutions, and a pioneering spirit in embracing nascent technologies with companies like Morgan Stanley, Nike, Polygon Labs, and Aptos Labs. His expertise in communication has not only led him to speak at over 50 events in the past 5 years but also to assume leadership roles where relaying complex ideas in a simplified manner has been paramount to growing organizations. He spearheaded the creation of a Thought Leadership Council for NFTs, which organized 30 events in 12 countries and amassed 45,000 global members from the world's top companies and governments. This effort underscored his dedication to the confluence of blockchain technology, finance, and education. Charles is also co-author of the book, "The Future of Community" published by Wiley. His transparent and optimistic approach, especially when differentiating the genuine technology use-cases of blockchain from currency-focused talking points in public discourse, has been a cornerstone of his journey.
