In another life before photography, Carlton has been a Life Coach specializing in career change and new business start up; worked in technical sales selling scientific instruments and chemicals; and used his Ph.D. as a Research Scientist to work at a few biotech companies in Massachusetts.
In his downtime, Carlton…
- is an avid and competitive tennis player (and spectator)
- is a cyclist with cool threads and a killer bike
- loves live theater performances
- is a nomad at heart traveling off on numerous adventures near and far every year
- loves everything food
- is learning to play the djembe
- has almost mastered the Carlton dance
Carlton is also an adventurer, explorer, foodie, philanthropist, nerd, social artist, and an extraverted introvert. While he has excellent skills in photography, he is also able to juggle 3 tennis balls, parallel park on the LEFT side, can assemble Ikea furniture without breaking a sweat, and owes his career in photography to the philosophy that you should always follow your passion.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. – Lawrence of Arabia
