Charles Munson

Charles has been developing and designing websites for businesses, nonprofits and media for the past 22+ years. He developed his passion for creating websites after a seeing a demo in 1993 by then grad student, Marc Andreessen (later co-founder of Netscape), on the World Wide Web. Charles saw website development as a combination of his skills as a artist and librarian.

In addition to running Bread and Roses, Charles is a web developer with micro-agencies Wethos (New York) and iLeadsMedia (Kansas City).

He has developed websites for iLeadsMedia, Wethos, V.I. Source newspapers, Precious Metals & Gems, Full Nelson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Richard Rice Law, Kids With Courage Foundation, HIVandHepatitis.com, The Diastole Scholar’s Center, The Blue Nile Cafe and numerous organizations and businesses. He currently consults with small agencies and start-ups. He also has extensive experience as a librarian, editor, publication designer, conference planner, and much more.

Charles has been a resident of Kansas City for much of his life. In his free time, he loves to be outdoors and is actively interested in birding, writing, making art, science fiction, movies, and gardening. His interest in photography often sees him documenting his music and foodie excursions. Charles is a fan of the Kansas City Royals, Sporting KC, the Green Bay Packers, the Washington Capitals, University of Kansas and University of Wisconsin basketball, and a rotating NBA team (the 76ers this year).
