About Charlie Strickland

Charlie Strickland loves life. He enjoys its ups and downs, twists and turns, and most importantly the people on the ride with him. His friends, family, and those who he may not see eye to eye with (not literally) make life interesting. Without these people life would be terribly BORING for him. Music is Charlie’s passion, specifically the bass guitar. He thoroughly enjoys making music with other musicians, so if you are one please contact him! When he’s not practicing the bass, Charlie writes sci-fi stories. The topics range from the life of a Byronic anti-hero assassin and his struggles, to a reluctant eighteen year old that just wants a normal life but is forced into a global revolution because of his heritage. Charlie is attending Sarah Lawrence College in New York.
