Charles Yarbrough was born in Port Townsend Washington. After only four years of age due to a Divorce he was moved to Napa, California where he was raised mostly by his mother while his father was a great role model and was always around for parental support. From a young age Charles had a natural curiosity for how things work, one of his most entertained hobbies was taking a part electrical devices like radios and TV’s. He was also very into sports playing Tball, soccer for 4 years once being player of the year, then switching to Little League Baseball. From Age 8 Charles was more into Music then Sports but still maintained them both. Starting his first band at age 11 with Kendall, a Drummer, and Kody on bass. Charles learned music from Childhood Piano Lessons and still plays piano well to date. While in High School his band changed to Frank, Gil, and Mike Faver where they played about 50 shows including being the house band for the Rocky Horror Picture Show and where fortunate to personally meet Other music professionals like Steve Miller, Santana, Primus, Metallica, among others.. After High School Charles studied deeply into Philosophy and Ethnic Culture while Playing Basketball at Napa Valley College and still playing in his band then called Mellow Fellow (A play off on lounge music and nomads). After reading most of the books written by Freud he studied history and the events that predominantly shaped modern society.
For work purposes Charles changed his major to Wine Making and after receiving his Wine Making certificate from NVC he transferred to the UC Davis world renown viticulture division to pursue his Bachelors in Wine Making.
After a year of studying wine, working at a winery, and personally making wine, Charles decided to once again change his major to business. This was due to realizing that making wine would rarely if ever lead him to working out of Napa and owning his own business was a childhood dream.
After leaving the wine program he shortly studied at Sonoma State’s business program where he got an offer from a friend to stay in Ilsa Vista by UCSB.
After leaving Sonoma with a business degree he moved to SB to be with a good friend and explore a new community.
After a year of living in SB he rented a room in the Mesa by downtown Santa Barbara. Then about 6 months later for personal reasons got a house in Goleta and rented the rooms out.
This extra income allowed Charles to Travel more, a passion he has been waiting to pursue. Starting his travels from the back of the location list up the first trip was to Mexico City, then to Jamaica, then in his biggest adventure he moved to Tibet to live with monks in a monastery. This three month journey ended a little early as he came back due to work and a feeling that he got what he wanted from the trip.
After 4 total years in SB Charles then moved to Huntington Beach. The move was a decision to start over in a new place that was known for great surf and a closer location to DWHS Inc. which is located in Downtown LA.
At this point Charles perused a stronger position with the DWHS family. After 4 years with DWHS he was offered a chance to invest and become a partner in the corporation. After excepting the position as a partner, DWHS has seen it’s biggest years exponentially from that point.
Charles after 3 years moved to Hollywood to experience what he has always heard of being a very liberal open minded place to have fun and socialize.
After one year of enjoying Hollywood, circumstances led Charles back to Orange County where he resided for about another year. Charles was never very happy with the area and lifestyle in Orange County, (Huntington Beach particularly) so he sold his house and moved to the West side of LA where he lived in a Apartment with Bernard (his dog).
After 1 year in Marina Del Rey Charles got the travel bug again and it so happened DWHS was looking to expand out of the country. After discussing with the partners at DWHS they decided to look into Costa Rica. The expansion for DWHS was finished after three month but Charles already was in love with the small country. After 1 year in Costa Rica and traveling to almost every country in Central and South America Charles moved back to Napa to spend time with family. After one year Charles moved back down to Los Angeles where he lives today.
