Chuck has been an educator for more than four years, doing everything from elementary school ESL in the Marshall Islands to Adult Basic Education in Seattle's low-income communities. When he's not helping turn kids into Food Detectives through the Beecher's Foundation Workshop, he teaches GED prep classes through Seattle Vocational Institute's Learning Center Seattle program.

Chuck became interested in food and nutrition programs in 2016 when he was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, where he discovered just how strong the relationship between input (food) and output (energy) really is in the human body. He and his fiancee are native East Coasters who are going to have an awfully hard time ever leaving Washington.
