Charles has been surrounded by letters and signs his entire life. His father had worked as a sign painter while his mother was a commercial lettering artist. His uncle owned a sign shop and it was there at age 22, that Charles began his lettering career working as an apprentice. Charles has done custom lettering work for the US Navy, American Greetings, NBC, Crystal Geyser, Publix, Del Monte and many others. In 2003 he released his first font LHF Sarah Script (named after his wife) and has since created over 17 typefaces.
