Carl grew up in Ohio where his interests included music (classical piano and singing) and sports.
A graduate of Denison University, Carl graduated co-valedictorian with majors in economics and math. He later received his MBA at the University of Chicago in Finance with highest honors. Carl moved to NYC in 1976 into the world of banking and investment banking where, over the next 19 years, he provided financial analysis, internal consulting, planning, merger implementation and corporate finance services at some of the industry’s leading banks including Chemical Bank, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.
After a successful career in banking and investment banking, Carl took some time to travel and pursue his new major interest in spiritual healing. This practice taught him to calm his mind and balance himself - skills necessary for recovering from his grueling time in his career.
It was during this time when Carl had the opportunity to reflect where his life was going to take him next... Broadway.
When Carl returned to New York, he began to study at the Commercial Theatre Institute where he gained mentors and partners which propelled him into theater producing
Carl turned what started out as a hobby into a true passion, as part of the producing team for some of the biggest hits in recent Broadway history. Along the way, he has won 13 Tony awards and helped tell the type of compelling stories and present stunning music which was his initial aim. Recently, Carl has turned from co-producing to lead producing and has several more projects in development.
Carl has since expanded his role in the arts through the formation of Dominion Pictures, a production company for film where he has already produced multiple films with several more currently in the pipeline.
Carl has also recently written his memoir during the Covid isolation period which was released in November, 2022. He hopes his story inspires others to pursue their dreams despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
