    I've relied on Carl time and time again to help me launch mission critical projects for my user experience publishing house. He's the prototypical multi-dimensional and empathetic UX practitioner, and brings those skills to bear in every project we've collaborated on. And he's dedicated: whether working on a cutting edge project or a mundane but critical storefront, Carl puts his all and more in every project.
