Chuck’s background as an engineer and planner working as a consultant for dozens of cities and towns across Minnesota gives him an intimate understanding of how land use and infrastructure projects get designed, funded and built. This unique insight across traditional silos is what led him to start Strong Towns in the wake of the national financial crisis that left so many local governments reeling from the sudden halt in development. A nationally sought after speaker, Chuck has given over 200 presentations to public officials, staff professionals and local citizens in the last five years to help them find a new pathway forward.

Chuck is the author of Thoughts on Building Strong Towns (Volume 1), and the upcoming book Money Hall due out in early 2015. He is also the primary author of the Strong Towns Blog and the host of the Strong Towns Podcast and See it Differently TV. He holds professional engineering and planning degrees from the University of Minnesota.

Chuck and his wife live with their two daughters and two Samoyeds just north of Baxter, Minnesota.
