Following her Language and Linguistics degree at University, Charlie started out her career as a professional model. She landed her first job in TV when she was snapped up by MTV as an entertainment reporter. Charlie seized the opportunity to break into the industry where her real passion lies – sport. Charlie became the face of Real Madrid International TV, travelling worldwide interviewing the ‘Galacticos’ and fronting many of their commercial activities such as the award-winning Adidas ‘Impossible is Nothing’ brand campaign with David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane.
In 2006, her success at Real Madrid TV led ESPN and Star Sports to appoint her as the first ever female presenter of live football in Asia, cementing her place in history. ESPN and Star Sports utilised Charlie’s wide ranging talents using them fully across the entire sporting spectrum as she became the main anchor for their live Premier League coverage, whilst also covering Motorsport, Asian Football and Basketball, resulting in Charlie presenting to a global audience in excess of 350 million.
A qualified personal trainer and bona fide fitness fanatic, Charlie’s passion is to encourage more and more people to become active and get involved with sport. Her generous nature coupled with her drive to challenge herself has led to her running 6 marathons to date, fundraising for charities including the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research, Women’s Aid Federation of England and the Special Olympics in Asia. Charlie also helped train autistic athletes as part of her work with the Special Olympics.
