He is a regular participant at think-tank conferences and round tables on liberty, economics, and the role of markets in a free society. Charles’ four children are all graduates of Waterford, and he feels fortunate to have raised them in the school community, where has wife Heather has also taught intermittently over the years. He enjoys hiking and skiing with his family in the Wasatch, and is an avid road cyclist who is a nine-time finisher of the Logan-to-Jackson Race, America’s longest single-day bike race. When not teaching at Waterford or playing in the mountains, he can be found reading in a comfortable chair in his living room, just a few blocks from campus.
