Meeting Charlie Jones, a curious audio/video creative

Recently I (virtually) met Charlie Jones, a gifted person with diverse talents for all things music and video, intense interests in movies and video games, and passion for exploring his creative limits — if those even exist. He’s a really nice guy and so very humble. I’m so glad I got the chance to meet…

Catching up with writer and artist Kathleen Phalen-Tomaselli
