Prior to a career in land assembly and commercial real estate, Carl spent half a decade in the financial service industry as a Financial Advisor focused on achieving his clients’ investment objectives.

Tech savvy and forward-thinking, Carl is also skilled at working with large data sets and building real estate financial modeling. Carl loves to travel. He hitchhiked some 7,000 kilometres across Iran and Turkey with his wife and created many cherished memories of people, places and food. Carl also enjoys his time volunteering at VanDusen Botanical Garden as a tour guide, cycling throughout the Lower Mainland and learning about classical music and opera.
