Charlie Rice

Hey, I’m Charlie. I grew up in Corpus Christi and moved to Austin in 2005 for my final two years of high school. I decided to study Engineering Physics at Embry Riddle, and from there earned a MS in Financial Engineering from the University of Hawaii.
While pursuing my degrees, I represented both universities on the tennis court and was an All-American athlete. Since graduating, I’ve been working as an engineer in the oil industry for Brigham Minerals.
I enjoy spending my free time rock climbing, swing dancing, cooking, and getting out on Lake Austin to wakeboard and paddle board. Austin is an incredible city and I try to take advantage of the best that it has to offer - live music and accessibility to nature and the outdoors. I’m excited to work with Explore Austin so I can share these passions with the mentees.
