Charlie Gorrill

I teach Intro to Web Design and Structure of Programming at NHCC. I have been connected to NHCC for about 20 years. I graduated from NHCC's Graphic Design program in '95 and the school has held a special place in my heart since then. I have been teaching in the CSci department for the last 5 years.
My other job is teaching art and AP CSci at Academy of Holy Angels in Richfield. In my spare time I love staying active with cycling, rock climbing, and chasing my kids around. I love video games, which comes through in the types of projects that I assign. As an artist, I am primarily a photographer. I shoot photos for a couple of theater companies in Minneapolis including Theater Pro Rata. I enjoy shooting press and promo photos for theater as well as production stills. In my spare time I also like to take photos of my family. If I ever find the time, I will get back to my first love: painting!
