Charles is a new member of Valiant tech team. His passion for computers took hold at age 12 when Charles was given a Commodore 64 by his father. Working in the IT field for him is a dream come true as every day new issues need to be resolved and he loves to learn new things. Charles is interested in every aspect of technology- how things work, why they stop working, and how to make them work again. From childhood he was eager to break things open just to see how they work- a habit which cost his family a beautiful refrigerator. His latest hobby is learning about new microcomputers which are changing the world of computing. Most notably, Raspberry Pi, Banana Pi and Parallella.
