Carl has spoken at numerous industry meetings over the years in topics such as ethics, workers’ compensation insurance and employee benefits programs.

When Carl isn’t pondering an insurance question he loves to read, piddle in his workshop and fish and cut brush at the family farm in central SC. Carl married his high school sweetheart and best friend, Margaret. They have two grown children and two grandchildren.
