Bio: Charlie White, Producer/Director/Author
Charlie White is an Emmy award-winning television producer/director, author and consultant who's been writing articles on the Internet since its infancy. He's currently Senior Editor of Mashable, one of the most powerful tech websites in the world with more than 25 million monthly unique visitors. He's written for Wired, Maximum PC and Popular Science magazines, was Senior Associate Editor for popular gadget site Gizmodo for two years, and for three years was Deputy Editor of NBC Universal tech site DVICE.
He's been a widely-known journalist, columnist and contributing editor for a variety of national magazines and websites since 1994. He's written numerous feature articles for Maximum PC (see "HD Camcorders Finally Arrive"), Studio Monthly, DV, Video Systems, Broadcast Engineering and Post Magazine, along with hundreds of published articles in other magazines, trade publications and websites.
In his career in broadcasting, his experience included directing Nightly Business Report, Star Gazer, Dollar Signs and Techno@bytes for national PBS television audiences. Charlie was Executive Producer/Director of the hit national PBS cooking series entitled Jill Prescott's Ecole de Cuisine. The series was praised by critics, calling it "fun — informative, informal, and jocular, with a completely unexpected male harem of cooking students stirring the pots and rolling out the dough." Charlie's specialty was promotional spot creation, for which he won a Chicago/Midwest Emmy Award in 1992. For more information, here's his complete résumé.
While beginning his television career, instead of starving Charlie was a radio announcer for classical and jazz stations in Miami and North Carolina. He was also a professional saxophonist, playing with small groups and big bands. The 12-year musical adventure included a seven-year gig with "Los Cumbiamberos," a Latino orchestra that recorded five albums, one of which was for CBS Records in 1983.
Charlie's currently living an unusually happy life in a small village on the windswept prairie of the central US. Nestled between the whispering evergreens and amber waves of grain—but not too far from a major airport and fast Internet access—is the Midwest Test Facility, where Charlie delights in the evaluation and testing of the latest gadgets, consumer electronics products, and digital video equipment.Résumé
