Charles "Chip" Massie was born and raised in Marin County, California. He studied at Indian Valley College before transferring to DeAnza College in Cupertino, CA to pursue a degree in Theater Arts. He then moved to Los Angeles and partnered in a small theater company for three years. In the mid 80's, he moved to Modoc County and opened a Bed and Breakfast Restaurant in Ft. Bidwell, CA. This led to an opportunity to open a restaurant in Alturas, CA called the Pizza and Pasta Place on April 1st, 1989. This restaurant led to the opening of Antonio's Cucina Italiana in Klamath Falls in early 2001. Both restaurants are still in operation. While in Alturas, Chip served on the Alturas City Council and was a representative to the Superior California Economic Development District. Chip also served as an active member of the Modoc County Chamber of Commerce, co-founded the Great Historic Hotel Bicycle Race, co-founded the Alturas Hot Air Balloon Festival, served as the President of the Alturas Community Theater, Inc and Modoc Performing Arts Theatre, served as program coordinator for the Modoc Arts Council, and developed the Modoc High Country Amphitheater.
