“Charlie is amazing at turning mundane, boring topics into content gold.”
–Leslie Ramey, SEO Consultant at Botify

I help businesses tell their stories and communicate what sets them apart from the rabble.

I write long-form B2B content including white papers, ebooks, blog posts, “how-tos,” and “ultimate guides.”

My work has appeared in The Boston GlobeWe are the Mighty, Sandboxx News, ROAM Magazine, and Thought Catalog. I’ve written B2B content for SalesForce, SenseHQ, HubSpot, Surfly, Campaign Monitor, and AkkenCloud.

I’ve also worked as a surf instructor, English teacher in Korea, and defamed Stop & Shop cashier.

Epic side projects:

Make Peace or Die 

I spent the past couple of years helping my father write his memoir, Make Peace or Die: a Life of Service, Leadership, and nightmares, which was featured on Jocko Willink’s podcast. My dad, Charles U. Daly, is a  decorated and wounded veteran of the Korean war (USMC), he worked in JFK’s West Wing, he’s 94 and still chops his own firewood. You can learn more about the book and his epic life at makepeaceordie.com.

Kayak expeditions 
 
This summer, I’m attempting a solo kayak ultramarathon–100K in 24 hours–to raise money for The Bantry Lifeboat.
 
Not only am I a member of the Lifeboat crew, but as a sea kayaker, living on Bantry Bay, I’m well aware that the day may come when I have to call on the Lifeboat for a rescue. I figure it’s a good idea to be on a first-name basis with the folks who might have to fish me out of the Bay.
 
We are a volunteer search & rescue crew (think volunteer firefighting meets the Coast Guard) supported by donations from the community we serve. Our crew is on call 24/7 in all weather to save lives in our corner of the North Atlantic.
