About Carl

I did comedy for 16 years before segwaying into professional speaking. I have appeared on David Letterman, Showtime, NPR, and The BBC. I have done speaking engagements for such groups as Boeing, USA Today, The Canadian Recreation Association, The International Society of Barristers. I have a sub specialty doing continuing legal education seminars for lawyers on communication and persuasion.

I have studied science, particularly Physics and Astronomy, since I was 8. I have given numerous talks on quantum mechanics and relativity theory to groups including those with PhDs.

I have taught English in public schools as well as coaching lawyers, doctors and others on improving communication skills. I also have intimate knowledge of how to use that marvelous instrument we all have, our vocal apparatus.

Feel free to contact me regarding specialized personal communication training.
