Hi. I'm Charles. I currently live in Greenville, Mississippi, about 2 and 1/2 hours south of Memphis. I am 22 years old, and as far as college goes...I have an Associates Business Degree in Computer Information Systems, but my current job isn't anything related to my degree, unfortunately. (Which is quite dumb of me I must admit.)
I am currently a technical director and camera operator at WXVT, CBS here in Greenville. We are a small market affiliate of CBS, New York. We have a really cheesy website at http://www.wxvt.com if you want to check it out. I am warning you that it's kind of a waste of time, though.
I first heard Jeff Buckley through a friend back around the time that he died, and to be perfectly honest, at the time, I was a dumb, naive kid with a horrid musical taste, so I didn't really understand his message, and more importantly I didn't find his music appealing. Now having said that...it's now nearing year number 7 since we lost him, and I now know that he is my favorite artist hands down. He is my major musical influence (I've been playing guitar for 9 years) and I find that his music has this quality to it unlike any other. To me, it's pure beauty; It almost makes me feel like I knew him personally, just by listening to the songs, because you can relate to them so easily.
When I talked with Hayley about this trip, I got excited, because I need something in my life more than what Greenville's daily routine can offer. I look forward to seeing you all, and meeting those that I don't already know.
