Born and raised in San Diego, California. Married to my best friend Courtney Delfino. We enjoy maintaining @thesunshinebug, riding bicycles, traveling, and taking photos of everything along the way.

I’m proud to be the Electric Vehicle Sales Specialist of Norm Reeves Toyota San Diego. Toyotas are arguably one of the most reliable vehicles on the market and it’s exciting being the point person for all things Toyota EV / Hybrid. As an avid camper, I identify tremendously with the outdoorsy lifestyle the Tacoma and 4Runner offer but I love the affordability and efficiency of the Prius and Corolla. Hit me with any and all questions comments or concerns you may have about purchasing a Toyota – would be happy to talk it out.

My first job ever, which I was at for 10+ years, was Nordstrom. That’s where I learned the book on customer service and the “leave it better than you found it” mindset.

In ALL my professional endeavors, my goal is to make the process honest, transparent, efficient, and personable. I pride myself in being a professional communicator and will ensure all your questions are answered and your best interests are always put first.

Recently, my wife Courtney and I started Le Travel Style which is gives us a reason to travel the world and constantly challenges me as a photographer. She plans the trips / outfits while I operate the camera / drone.

Speaking of drones, I’m also a licensed FAA Certified Part 107 Drone Operator.

Riding bikes in Paris on our honeymoon – probably the exact moment we were bit by the travel bug.

Back in 2010, I created a bicycle safety advocacy group called The Awarewolfs (AWLF). Every full moon since then I’ve promoted a Fullmoon Bikeride and AWLF FMBRs still happen to this day! Under The Awarewolfs name, I organized, promoted, hosted, and documented hunnndreds of bicycle rides, races, and events. I maintain a blog, social medias, and I DIY hand finished apparel which I sell out of the online store. I’m proud to say I got AWLF products on Amazon, had “pop-ups” (like THIS and THAT), and State Bicycle Co even designed a “Charlie Sears Signature Jersey+Bottle” (see below). I’m still a State Bicycle Co Ambassador and am currently building up / enjoying their new 4130 All Road!

I was a design consultant for OCNWTR – a non-profit fighting the clean water fight in El Salvador. In March of 2015, I went to El Salvador with a team of 30 and saw their clean water crisis first hand. We distributed clean water filtration systems that they still use to this day.

I also did the website for Ken Thunderhawk – the best barber you’ll ever meet.

If I handed you a card – nice to meet you – I’m looking forward to keeping our conversation going. If you found this online, thanks for stopping by.

Let me know how I can help you best.

Love always,
– Charlie
