About Charlie Hintz
Cult of Weird founder and curator of the bizarre, Charlie is an amateur historian, cemetery explorer, Ed Gein researcher and dark tourism junkie. His interest in historical oddities, mysteries and the unexplained began as a child with a stack of occult and paranormal books, and a pile of vintage National Geographic magazines. As a Wisconsin native, he grew up surrounded by stories of cannibal killers, UFO sightings, strange creatures, restless spirits and other unique curiosities that are a way of life in Wisconsin. By day, Charlie is almost convincingly normal as a web/graphic designer and digital strategist.
