About Charlie Hintz

Charlie is the creator and curator of the bizarre for Cult of Weird. When he's not writing or rotting away at his mind-numbing day job, he can be found working on graphic design projects for horror media and hunting down local legends around his home state of Wisconsin. Though he prefers more tangible oddities, he maintains a skeptical interest in the paranormal. Probably as an excuse to explore beyond the no trespassing signs.
