Carl sprouted from the fertile soil of Berkeley, CA. He transplanted himself to Oberlin College where he received a BA in Psychology, and then to the University of Southern California for graduate studies in film production. He worked as an editor on the environmental documentary “A Snowmobile For George” and for MTV before leaving Hollywood to start a garden and refocus his attention on permaculture, yoga and integral wellness. He worked as a counselor, teacher, gardener and food activist before returning to filmmaking in 2008 to amplify the message of the sustainable food movement. He has since produced and edited two feature documentaries: Edible City and Occupy The Farm–as well as recently directing the video that launched The Polish Ambassador’s Permaculture Action Tour. Carl also serves on the stewardship council for the Gill Tract Community Farm in Albany, CA and is on the Board of Directors for the Bay Area based non-profit ERIE (Entheogenic Research Integration and Education). Carl still lives in Berkeley and continues to garden, make movies, practice yoga and provide consultation for individuals and organizations on a variety of subjects.
