BIOGRAPHY Charlie was born in Bogota, Colombia, home of the world-renowned open-air rock music festival in Latin America. He spent his boyhood living in Chile where he was recognized as a professional champion BMX Bike Racer. His travels with his family throughout Latin America nourished his melodious ear with music from various cultures. Being immersed in music all his life naturally made him an aficionado at an early age. At 15, Charlie was promoting bands and performing as a musician. It was with Paradise Disco Mobil in Cali that he fell in love with the magic of mixing; turn tables, and House Music. He delved into radio as air talent for RadioActiva 93.1FM. At 19, he returned to Bogota and remained there as he further excelled in his musical and entertainment career. After performing in television and radio commercials, he secured a spot with Super Estereo 88.9FM, a high-ranking youth directed radio station in Colombia where he hosted student activities in the morning show and mixing for the weekend party show. His exposure as an MC led him to form Purpura Mobile Deejae, his very first enterprise. In the first year, Purpura Mobil DJ became among the most sought out mobile DJs in the country. He was invited to consult on various projects with Polygram Colombia, now Universal Music, SonoLux, and EMI Music. By 24 Charlie had become quite a successful and experienced music entrepreneur. He was called to Sony Music’s marketing division where he worked closely with artists like Shakira and Carlos Vives - both from Colombia, of course. He also promoted artists like Aerosmith, Ricky Martin, Oasis, Gloria Estefan, and Victor Manuel many more. During this time, Charlie had the opportunity to visit prestigious venues throughout the world. He fulfilled one of his dreams when he moved to New York City to devote himself to the music and radio industry. There he worked alongside legendary DJs such as Danny Tenaglia in prime clubs like The Tunnel, Roxy, and Webster Hall. He became a pioneer in crossover style parties touring venues like Club New York, Monaco, Buddha Lounge, and Copa Cabana. In his early 30’s Charlie left cross over and returned to mixing House Music throughout the East Coast. He has spent significant time as a guest DJ for premier venues and radio shows in the United States and Canada. Occasionally he works with renowned radio artist DJs and producers on special projects. Charlie has found ultimate meaning in music all his life. He is grateful for all the passion and love music has brought him. In addition to working toward becoming a world class DJ for his own realization, he is compelled to make a difference. Charlie is now embarking on new confidential ventures to expand the music and radio industry. For now he will keep us all guessing, but shares that it will benefit humanity.
