About

Hi there! The name's  Charlene Ingram, your friend from the Internet! You can call me Char. I'm the Director of Animation Marketing at North America's largest distributor of manga, anime and pop-culture goodness, VIZ Media. On a quest to spread the magic of anime and Japanese entertainment, my weapons of choice are analytics, tenacity, experience, a third eye for spotting trends and a diamond-tough love for the content & its fans. You may have seen me speaking on stage at pop-culture conventions nationwide, on loads of Youtube and Blu-ray extra feature videos, or perhaps (if you have an eagle-eye), even in cosplay.

 

I've been a member of the Anime industry for nearly ten years having worked previously at Funimation as Senior Brand Manager and a founder of North Amerca's first cosplayer-focused wig and accessories company. My philosophy is to be a ray of sparkling-dazzling positivity, to work hard, lead by example, go big, and never ever stop dreaming. The world of entertainment makes lives more wonderful, so think of me as a shimmery fairy godmother.

This site is but a tiny peek into a wildly multi-faceted jewel, so have a look around and enjoy! Links to various Social Media sites I maintain may be found at the bottom of the page as well as a link to email. You'll find I'm most active on Twitter, so for the latest, I suggest you follow my adventures there. @tristencitrine

Just a Sparkling, Dazzling Anime Industry person.

For conventions- Due to my busy schedule, I take a VERY SMALL number of bookings as a Cosplay or Industry guest each year. Please email to inquire about availability for 2018.
