Work History

Charlie spent the first 10 years of his professional life in education. While teaching, he found himself immersed in learning about needs and motivations of learners and leaders. He experienced his own struggles with communication and leadership and went through a transformative growth process supported by mindfulness and driven by his desire to constantly learn and grow from his mistakes. Move Mountains was formed as a result of Charlie’s journey and continues to evolve as the Move Mountains team works with Mindful Leadership through embodied and experiential learning. Charlie has worked with Fortune 100 companies, small businesses, non-profits and educational institutions, providing expert design and facilitation and creating palpable change in the way teams interact and individuals thrive as Mindful Leaders. 

What Mindful Leadership Means to Charlie

Mindful Leadership is a foundational practice for life. The integration of Attention, Intention and Action bring fulfillment and happiness to everyday moments at home and at work. Through our extensive research and design work, the Move Mountains Mindful Leadership Map offers the world a simple and practical approach to living our best lives and making the world a better place, one choice at a time.

For Fun

For fun, Charlie continues his practices and studies in somatic work, mindfulness, neuroscience, and communication. He is constantly striving to be a better husband and father while enjoying the goodness that each moment brings. When not working, you will likely find Charlie outside.  Whether in the back yard, in the mountains or on the water, Charlie enjoys spending time with his family and working on projects around the house.
