Hi, I'm Charlie. I was previously the Director of Outreach at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit, I now work for FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) on the FIRST LEGO League team.


I have a wide range of experience not limited to program development (virtual, outreach and in-person), program and people (staff and volunteer) management, event design and management, grant management, and fundraising. In 2019, I was the project manager for DEPTH, a unique exhibit partnership between Science Gallery Detroit, Michigan State University and the Michigan Science Center. I also worked part time for many years at the Detroit Zoo leading family and community programs for diverse audiences covering a wide range of natural science topics.


I have consulted on education initiative for other institutions and served as project manager for innovative programs that helped connect the museums or organizations to their community.
