Charles is passionate about entrepreneurship, aviation and of course, coffee!
He has worked for many great organizations including NASA, Boeing, the US Air Force (civilian), The Spaceship Company (aka Virgin Galactic), Kansas State University as a researcher for UAS and many more.
In 2014, he created Douvalis Labs as a think tank after stumbling into lean business principles (thank you, Eric Ries). Later in 2015, he created The Wright Cup with a mission to help you discover great coffee, which led him to uncover the water issue in specialty coffee co-founding Third Wave Water in 2016.
After a brief, exciting moment on ABC’s Shark Tank and receiving his first published research paper from the FAA, he is now full time helping take Third Wave Water to its next big steps.
