A kind and gentle soul with a quick wit, Carl was a graduate of University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. He was an Integration Technician, working with computer hardware at Zones. However, his real passion was making people laugh. Clever anecdotes told with a deadpan delivery were his specialty. Carl performed weekly improv at the Bughouse Theater in Chicago. He also loved exploring the country on road trips with his friends. At home, you could find him with his two cats, Buddy and Katja. Carl also loved video gaming, mountain biking and following the Chicago Bulls.
