When asked where he grew up, Charley Carpenter says "around"-- meaning Connecticut, Texas, the San Francisco Bay Area, and western Montana. He has a BS in Economics from Montana State University, and his law degree from the Catholic University of America. Charley was a corporate lawyer in Washington DC from 1991 to 2009, when he moved back to Montana to start his own law practice in Missoula. He and his photographer wife Uschi chose Missoula as their home not only for the outstanding natural beauty, but also for its thriving arts scene. Charley is new to the Board this year, and is excited to be able to help steer ZACC to greater success.
