Biography

Charles Benoit

Charles was born in a small log cabin along the banks of the Genesee River in Rochester, NY, where he was raised by various woodland creatures. At the tender age of 5, he was sent—without his consent --- into society to be “educated.” He endured many years in various institutions of learning, both higher and otherwise, with one ill-advised break to spend some time with his Uncle Sam in the Army. It was during this time that he met his future wife, sweeping her off her feet with tales of derring-do and promises of riches beyond her wildest dreams. Fortunately for Charles, Rose was easily impressed and had affordable dreams. He taught high school social studies in the Rochester City School District and at international schools in Kuwait and Trinidad and Tobago. Rose and Charles returned to the high-life in exotic Rochester, where today Charles works in advertising, creating ads that drive consumers into a buying frenzy.
