Growing up, Charlie was frequently bullied and was even beaten up in the subway while returning home from school. But these experiences helped him transform, and he vowed that he would never let things like that happen ever in his life again.
Despite his parent’s skepticism, Charlie entered into Brooklyn Technical High School to study Engineering and graduated from there. He then went to the prestigious Polytechnic Institute and dropped out.
Later, Charlie enrolled in the Marine Corps at Parris Island, South Carolina. His father was also a Marine who advised him to shut his mouth, do what he is told and never complain if he got hit.
He graduated as first in class at boot camp and trained as a jungle expert. Being in the Marines - learning to protect himself and control his fear helped Charlie evolve his personality.
After returning to New York from the Marines, Charlie considered resuming his college while doing freelance construction work. But he dropped out again, which led him to more meaningful goals in his life.
Furthermore, at age 57, the Marine proudly flaunts his tattoos, especially the symbol where the heart is morphing into a lion.
