The Owl

Charlie Martin

Charlie Martin, Business Manager & Media Director

Charlie is an interested and passionate senior at Boulder High. This is his first year on the Owl staff and he is excited to learn about journalism and explore his passion for writing. He joined the Owl hoping to find a community of writers and journalists that shared similar interests and passions. Outside of school, you can find Charlie doing anything that involves the outdoors. Charlie is very interested in financial markets and economics, and he regularly writes about financial markets in his newsletter. He also likes to play all types of sports, whether it is dodgeball or nordic skiing. Fun fact: he once played a game of dodgeball with grapes. He played with red grapes because he would prefer to eat green grapes instead of destroying them in a game of dodgeball.
