Charles Lawson

Charles Lawson

A business and creative writing student. Who fancies himself a cultural theorist, a title that largely means he over analyses marvel movies and goes on long rants about the intersection of economics and pop culture to half listening friends in a coffee shop. He spends his free time writing, reading, and studying (by studying he of course means watching YouTube debates and liking memes on twitter.)
