Chuck began his rock n' roll career as a drummer in a pop/rock band affiliated with his high school in Lake Wales, FL. The most notable venues played were Disney World and the Florida State Fair. He continued drumming off and on during college at the University of Florida.
After college, Chuck remained in Gainesville, eventually forming a band with three of his high school friends who had also attended UF. The band played originals and a few covers in the local bar scene circa 1990 - 1991. During his time in Gainesville, he bought his first guitar and began to focus on guitar, rather than drums.
Chuck's main influences are The Beatles, The Police and Bruce Springsteen. His main guitars are a 1994 Gibson J-30 and a Takamine. When not playing guitar, Chuck is an attorney with his own practice in St. Petersburg.
