So who is this Charlie Cheney fellow anyway?
Charlie Cheney plays gigs, writes songs, does voice-over work, and creates and markets Indie Band Manager. He's started and sold five companies, recorded and released three CDs, written and produced a musical in Manhattan (to rave reviews in the Voice), and worked as a busboy at Chi-Chi's.
In the past few years Cheney has added "motivational speaker" and "music industry icon" to his resume, and is now a sought-after speaker for music conferences and universities (SXSW, CMJ, DFest, FullSail, MPMF, DeweyBeachFest, BCCC, BMI New York, MidAtlantic MMC, EAT'M, and NEMO among others to date). He's a veritable one-stop-shop for performing, entertaining, story-telling, songwriting, barbeque ribs, lawn care, and drinking Rolling Rock beer (yes, you can buy him one, thanks for asking).
While Cheney was their Chief Technology Officer one of his companies received a $2 million dollar investment from AOL, and another received $17 million from JP Morgan. He once jumped over two picnic tables on his bike, obtaining only minor injuries during the second attempt. He was senior class president of his high school but was unable to give his contest winning commencement speech as he'd been expelled for "inappropriate use of the public address system". He graduated with a BA in Communication Arts in 6.5 years, a mere 12 credits shy of as many as four other degrees of comparable merit. He enjoys walking with his dogs and sledding with his kids and laughing out loud on a daily basis. He's been called the "Happy Evil Genius" by more than one person on more than one occasion. He finds this heartwarmng and amusing.
Cheney has driven to Alaska across 900 miles of gravel road, hitchhiked from Seattle to Chicago in 2 1/2 days with only $45 in his pocket, flown DHL from SanFran to Chicago for free just so they could use his luggage space, had his photo on the front page of newspapers, been interviewed for radio, TV, and print. He's had short stories published, won awards for video art, won a skateboarding state championship, can juggle five objects simultaneously, and owns an over-sized soup whisk that he won simply by proving he could balance it on his nose for over a minute, no-handed.
Cheney has the most amazing wife imaginable. He's traveled through over 20 countries and been to every state in the USA except Hawaii (primarily because he couldn't drive there). In first grade he was voted "Most Likely to Become a Millionaire Selling Wacky Packages". He has lived and worked in New York, London, Chicago, Philadelphia, Madison, Chena Hot Springs, and Fremont, to name a few. He once sold a guitar to have enough money to get in and out of Canada successfully. He has proven by example that he can change the tire of a car. Occasionally he cooks over-easy eggs one-handed, just to show off. He once walked 17 miles from Penzance to Land's End just to see the western most point of the western world. His enneagram number is seven. On Feb. 25th, 2006 he whipped up a particularly tasty batch of chili.
