Born and raised in San Diego, California – but just moved back from living the last 3 years on Long Island in New York.

I love to ride bicycles, snowboard, camp, travel, and take photos of everything along the way. Recently, my wife Courtney and I started a travel / photography passion project – Le Travel Canvas.

While we were in New York, we took advantage of our close proximity to Europe and traveled all over the East Coast, Boston, Austin, Italy, London, Paris, and Amsterdam. Traveling re-kindled a passion for photography in me and I’m excited to explore some new avenues with my camera…

In 2010, I created a bicycle advocacy group called The Awarewolfs.

Under The Awarewolfs name, I conceptualized, promoted, organized, hosted, and documented hunnndreds of bicycle rides, races, and events. I maintained The Awarewolfs blog, multiple social media accounts, and hand finished apparel which I sold off the webstore. I’m proud to say I got The Awarewolfs products on Amazon, had AWLF “pop-ups” (like THIS and THAT), and State Bicycle Co even designed a “Charlie Sears Signature Jersey” (see above).

I was a brand / design consultant for Ride4Water – a non-profit fighting the clean water fight in El Salvador. I also did the website for San Franciscan Barber, Ken Thunderhawk.

While I was living on Long Island, I sold vehicles at Sayville Ford and the nickname I earned there was ‘Charlie Hustle’. As a Californian, I’m proud to have received that nickname from a bunch of New Yorkers because the Urban Dictionary defines ‘Charlie Hustle’ as “a person with initiative – a selfstarter – a person that has juice for opportunities out in the world trying to make something happen for themselves.”

Now that I’m back in San Diego, I’m selling cars at Penske Ford in La Mesa and I also take photos of the inventory for the website.

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.

Love always,

– Charlie
