Charles R. Lance is a native North Carolinian. He was born is Pinehurst, North Carolina, and lived there until he left to go to college in Charlotte. Lance loved growing up in Pinehurst, as it is a beautiful resort town located just two hours from the coast. Growing up, Lance was home-schooled by his mother. He says that though the experience is not for everyone, he really enjoyed growing up in a home-schooling environment. Because his mother was a teacher in the past, she was able to provide him with the academic skills he needed to prepare him for high school. In addition, Lance was exposed to many social situations, as he took piano and voice lessons with other children and was always part of a competitive swim team.
In ninth grade, Charles R. Lance was enrolled in The O’Neal School, a private coeducational school. The O’Neal School is located in Southern Pines, NC.

Lance has always enjoyed swimming and has taken lessons since he was a toddler. He swam competitively, even during his home-schooling days.

State Champion as well as a National’s qualifier. His best event was always the free stroke, though he also enjoyed back and breast stroke, too. Lance was a regional and national qualifier during all four years of college.

Charles R. Lance received an Economics degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. During college, he interned with Bank of America and was eventually offered a full-time position with the company after graduation.

He loved living abroad and had the chance to travel to multiple cities in Europe including Paris, Barcelona, London and the island of Sicily. Out of all of the cities he visited, Lance loved Amsterdam the most. He says the city has the best food, friendliest people and most exciting things to do.
While Lance was in Holland, he learned to speak conversational Dutch. His host family was very kind and helpful in his pursuit to learn the Dutch language. After leaving Holland, he stayed in touch with his host family and plans to visit them at some point in the near future. Since returning to the United Sates, his host family came to North Carolina to visit.
After returning from studying abroad, Charles R. Lance joined a band with a few college buddies.

It wasn’t surprising that Lance chose to pursue a career in music. From a very young age, he was exposed to all things musical. His father introduced him to music when he was just a little boy. Lance grew up listening to bands and artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Willie Nelson. He took piano and voice lessons for years and picked up guitar as a teenager. Since then, music has always played a significant part in his adulthood. He has always enjoyed going to see live music and has travelled to many music festivals around the world. Throughout high school, Lance would go to music camp during the summer in the mountains of North Carolina. It was there that he learned how to play the acoustic and electric guitar as well as the bass.
Last year, Charles R. Lance adopted two dogs, Milo and Ralph, and one cat, Max, from the Charlotte Humane Society. Lance has always loved animals but has never had the time and resources to commit to pet ownership. In addition to owning his own pets, Lance fosters dogs and cats from various humane societies until he can find them forever, loving homes. Since adopting, Lance realized that there are many unwanted dogs and cats that live in shelters across the United States. Thus, he decided to get involved volunteering for local spay and neuter clinics that provide affordable surgeries for pet owners and animal shelters. Charles R. Lance is committed to encouraging his friends, family and the public to adopt pets, rather than purchase.
For a young man, Lance has done and seen a lot for his age. He has travelled to multiple countries and has performed as a musician for thousands of spectators. Charles R. Lance hopes to continue pursuing his passion for music and travel, while making time for his family and pets.
Charles R. Lance hopes to pursue a successful career in music. Though he has a finance degree to fall back on, his passion is music and he hopes performing can serve as his full-time job. His band, Mickey and the Firecrackers, plans to release their next album in the fall. They also hope to perform again this year at Austin City Limits and South By Southwest in Austin. Their long-term goal is to have the chance to complete an international tour in Europe.
Lance hopes to have the chance to go back to Amsterdam this year, either with his band or by himself. Since studying abroad there, he has wanted to return to visit his host family and see all of his old professors and friends. Lance hopes that one day, he will have the chance to own a vacation home in Amsterdam. So far, it is his favorite city he has ever visited.
Though Lance already has two dogs and one cat, he hopes to adopt one more pet before next year in 2014. In addition, he wants to remain committed to serving as a volunteer for the Charlotte Humane Society. He also says that he will continue to foster local dogs and cats in the area that are looking for forever homes.
Charles R. Lance wants to continue travelling in the future and has aspirations to make it to Asia and Australia, where his grandparents are originally from. He hopes the rest of his life is filled with music, travel and animals, as they are his three most significant passions.
