Carl's motto is, "if you can imagine it, I can make it!"
From a very young age, Carl created objects and works of art from whatever materials he could find. As a kid, he entered into art shows and science fairs taking many first place, "best of class" and "best of show" awards for a multitude of creative endeavors. At age 15, Carl won a first place ribbon, "Best of Class" and a trip to Washington DC for a scale replica of a turn of the century rail town. Carl's inventions of numerous mechanisms and kinetic models were only the beginning of his illustrious model-making career.
Carl's college years were spent in the creative Bachelor of Arts field and 10 months of study in Spain, with a full load of classes at the art academy "Escola Messana", a 13th century gothic hospital, and a complete curriculum at the University of Barcelona.
The next 32 years after college were spent creating products and models and solving manufacturing issues for a host of industries: toys, medical, consumer electronic, automotive, telecommunications, architectural and entertainment, to name only a few. Carl has created the Batman Mini-Chopper; the Batcycle and Monster Trucks for Mattel's Batman license; the Verti-Harry Quiddish game for Mattel; as well as the prize winning, large-scale, interactive display for Hot Wheels, which was the main Hot Wheels attraction at the recent NY Toy Fair. He has designed the Stikfa Delta Boy Extreme car for Hasbro and various prototype action car models for the "Car Launchers" license at Playmates. Carl also created many prototype sculpts of action figures for Bandai and also developed and created the final model of the "Foosball Table" for Warrior Custom Golf.
To date, Carl has various patents to his name for creative solutions to real problems or needs. He has been creating a wide variety of models for product development companies such as: Custom Building Products, Inc.; Watkins; Wine Innovations, LLC; Media Check; BioCybernetics and C-Tech. For these clients he has created a diverse array of prototypes, such as: furniture, waterfall
devices, inventions for saving wine, self cleaning kitty boxes, and household media devices to monitor the Nielson TV Ratings.
For the medical industry, he recently designed a neck brace and an innovative field tourniquet that can be applied in less than 15 seconds. He has also recently designed and patented a revolutionary dialysis machine.
