Jim Au, President, Impact Media Ministries:
Carl is someone you want on your team, whether as a consultant or embedded in your project: multi-talented, sharp, perceptive, discerning, very skilled technically, easy to work with, has great connections, a great writer, knowledgeable about what is going on in the field and in the greater context, eager to learn and try new things, most importantly a man of courage, character, strength, vision and lots of fun to work with! A lot of heart in this man. I give him two thumbs up, a cheer and wave a flag!

Toni Anderson (client):
Carl is innovative and a student of up to date software and hardware. He continues his education constantly in a field where none is “required.” Carl’s former training as an Electrical Engineer, work at NASA, activism in Washington DC in the 60’s, former church board member, and over 30 books published, many the initial Microsoft tech manuals, only scratch the surface of the depth of this man’s intelligence.!
