A soul looking for a place to show itself.
My name is Chuck Chvala. Actually, my name is Charles Chvala the third. Being the third is a dubious honor at best, but it usually makes for an interesting conversation. I live in Madison, Wi. This is where I have spent the last 28 years of my life.
I am a father of 2. My daughter is 10 going on awesome and my son is 7 going on amazing. My wife and I live on the west side of Madison and we love this city. In my spare time, I am a reader, computer fan and a photographer. I’ve been involved in them for as long as I can remember.
I am a hard working mid-wester boy with:
I have worked for a local company for 25 years. In my time there I was a trainer, laborer, lab technician, machine operator, manager, technical writer as well as donning many other hats. Those 24 years have seen upturns and downturns in the economy and thus, the construction industry as well. In the last 4 years we have had to work harder than ever with fewer employees and that practice has definitely taken its toll physically and mentally in my life. That pretty much leads to where I am today. I am returning to school to pursue a college career that I turned away from 24 years ago.
I am pursuing a career that embraces the graphic arts degree that I initiated in 1988 with my photography and my computer skills. Visual Communications is the program that I have chosen to bridge those skills.
I look forward to embarking on this journey.
