Early Life

At a young age, Charm was already into acting, participating in various local theater plays. However, other than acting, he also has this dream of becoming a basketball player. To turn this into a reality, he attended Victor Valley High School and became active in sports, particularly in basketball and baseball.

Although he did well as an athlete, his career in sports came to an end in his senior year. He graduated as an honor student and went to college at San Joaquin Valley College to enroll in business and theology classes.

The Start of His Career

One day, he took a photo of himself and posted it online. He was surprised at how it instantly got 53 likes. It was then he found out that he has a photogenic side and realized he could be great at it.

Charm then created a Facebook page, and in a short span of time, it amassed more than 3,000 followers. It was during this time when he thought that maybe modeling was his true calling.

Signing Up with ExploreTalent

It was not much later when he came across ExploreTalent. He signed up with them and became really proactive by submitting more than 500 applications.

Within three and a half weeks, he received an invitation to Nuvo’s red carpet event for the launching of Jennifer Lopez’ new channel. By signing up with ExploreTalent, he made the right connections and came upon this window of opportunity that opened up a whole lot of changes in his life.

In the event, he got the chance to rub elbows with prominent people and decision makers in Hollywood. He even met renowned film directors and world-class photographers. At the end of the day, he took home more than 20 business cards from various industry professionals.
