Charles Easley is best selling Amazon author for his book series "Misadventures of an Urban Nerd and "Class is in Session". He is also a columnist for Creative Loafing.
When he is not fighting crime as a Black, gay, southern, educator he is binging on Netflix, sitcoms, writing and working on campaign for Marvel to finally produce a Storm X men origin film as he is a proud nerd and comic book geek. And hopefully with an actress that is authentic to the character, Storm is from Kenya for Christ sake. We don’t want another Nina Simone casting faux pas.
He has appeared on media outlets including NPR, an appearance on "The BJ Murphy Show" and several guest host spots on "The Satisfied Life" with Ramona Holloway.
He is a committed educator, writer and media artist.
Charles has enjoyed a very successful career of blending academic and professional environments. He brings the critical analysis of academia to a production environment while taking the sensibility of practical application into the classroom.
