Uptown Mugs #63 . Charles ‘Chuck’ Healy

Chuck is one of those people who we love to show off.  On point with style, class, professionalism, and a kind word for everyone, Chuck is widely known and respected.  Affectionately known as Chuck, he lives, works and plays uptown, and truly walks his talk on the merits of uptown urban living.  Chuck is an Account Executive at TELUS and has been working internally for the past year and half to get a TELUS store location in the Uptown area especially to service Uptown businesses.  He has disclosed to us that a location will be announced very soon.  So exciting!

Wearing another hat, you can sometimes find Chuck working the turntables at Five and Dime, spinning a few of his favourites.  He’s one of our uptown poster-boys, enjoying and adding to our arts, culture, and social scene – and his charisma lends a definite extra bit to our uptown essence.

Let’s get to know Charles:

 

Where were you born/Where are you from?

I was born in Halifax, however I grew up in Saint John.  I moved away in 1986 for University.  After graduating, I lived in Halifax and Toronto. I moved back to Saint John in 2013.

 

How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?

When I moved back to Saint John in 2013, I knew immediately that my only choice would be Uptown living.  It has so much to offer and I wanted to be part of it.  After a brief stay with my Mom on the west side, I discovered Historica Developments.  Their loft style designs highly appealed to my own sense of style.

 

Name one or two people who you look to for inspiration?

I get inspired daily by my son Andrew and daughter Caroline.

 

What is your favourite season, and why?

I love the beach, camping, hiking, motorcycles, and BBQ’s so it’s clear I think.  😉

 

 

What is your ultimate favourite snack food?

Hickory Sticks.  I’m all about the savory vs sugar.

 

Coffee, tea, or other?

Nothing like a cup of coffee in the morning, and wine in the evening.  But I only drink wine with others or when I’m by myself ;).

 

Any pets?

Not currently, but I can be a crazy cat lady in short order.

 

Most guilty pleasure?

Listening to vinyl every night.

 

Worst habit?
Listening to vinyl every night.

 

Favorite Musician?

I really have too many to mention.  I’m a vinyl collector and I would say 2/3rds of the records are from the 70’s.  I’m a big fan of the singer/songwriter. I  do really like Neil Diamond.  Named my daughter Caroline – I guess I really like him.
What is your Uptown Insider Tip? 

We have incredible architecture in the streets of uptown.  I love just grabbing a coffee and walking all over the uptown area and finding great photo ops, and then boasting about our beauty through my social media channels.  We need to show off our beauty and the amazing lifestyle we enjoy in living life uptown.
