Charlie Fyffe is the Founder and Head Pastry Chef of Charlie’s Brownies. Originally from Los Angeles, CA, his passion for the kitchen started at a young age, as he was selling brownies in high school and was tagged with the nicknames “Charlie Brown” and “Charlie Brownies.” While studying at UC Berkeley in the Bay Area, he joined the Baking Club and started to develop new flavors and variations of his original brownie. During his junior year, he landed a deal with one of the coffee shops on campus and started supplying brownies to the student body. After graduating, he moved back to LA and became part of a business incubator known as 100 Urban Entrepreneur and successfully launched CharliesBrownies.com. While taking the risk of starting a business at such a young age, Charlie has taken time out to share his passion and the many lessons he’s learned with younger people through motivational speaking all over the country. One day he aspires to have the number one global brownie brand while helping many people start their own business and live out their dreams.



Prom 2014

Prom 2014

Prom is an amazing time in a High School Seniors life. Especially for the young ladies.

The time they take to perfect that smile. Hours of rehearsal for the perfect pose.

The time spent envisioning all the different dresses you’ve seen and tried on. The hard choices you had to make in the elimination process of the dress stand-off. Weight, heels, hair color all play a part in the choices women make.

And all this is before the actual event.

I had the privilege of watching Alexus  transform form herself into an amazing model.

Her poses were dead on.

Her patience with everyone was professional.

She put it all together and wore it all amazingly!

She was determined to make it her day.

All the cameras were on her.

All complements were directed towards her. She was emaculet. She was beautiful. She was a young lady.

She was perfect.
