Born in Chicago, Chuck was reared in Des Moines, Baldwin City (Kan.) and Columbia (Mo.). It was in Columbia that Chuck attended high school and the University of Missouri – School of Journalism, earning his Bachelor of Journalism degree in 1972.
For 15 years, Chuck pursued a career in broadcasting, working in the news departments of radio and television stations in Aspen, Denver, and Tulsa.
In 1987, Chuck joined the staff of AAA Oklahoma/South Dakota as head of the Public Affairs department. His duties included not only handling the club’s public and media relations and legislative/government affairs activities, but also administering the club’s many traffic safety programs, serving as the club’s community service projects coordinator, and editing Home & Away magazine, now AAA World, the member publication sent six times annually to all AAA members in Oklahoma/South Dakota.
AAA serves as the voice of AAA members, representing them in the halls of state legislatures, in Congress and before the many agencies and departments within state government. The club’s primary advocacy issues continue to revolve around highway funding and traffic safety.
Chuck retired in the fall of 2017 and now pursues freelance travel writing assignments for publications such as Oklahoma Magazine. He and his wife Nancy enjoy life in Carlton Landing, a new town embracing “new urbanism,” located on the shores of Lake Eufaula (Okla.), the “Gentle Giant,” the largest lake in Oklahoma at 105,000 acres and 800 miles of shoreline. Chuck enjoys raising herbs, walking, cooking, travel (of course) and their beautiful new grandchild, Sadie, age five months.
