Miles Backer

Weirdly enough, Miles Backer dislikes travel. But this avid "armchair traveler" has collected over 600 travel brochures and atlases. His initial inspiration for "Travels with Charlie" came from a set of vintage dishtowels featuring all the states he won't be visiting. Chuck Nitzberg loves traveling, music, and going to the beach. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, he modeled Charlie after a beloved pet.
