As anyone local who knows me can attest, I get pretty (very) excited when I hear that someone creative, fun, genuine and generally awesome is thinking about moving to Lake Worth. I have a spiel. I offer neighborhood tours and house-hunting assistance. Sometimes, I almost-beg. I believe in this town and what it has to offer, and know that its potential comes closer to being realized with every single person that moves here or sets up shop with the right community-minded motives. I also get that the future of our House depends on this growth.
When I first met Carl, he'd already moved down from New York - so I didn't have to bring my full campaign. I quickly realized he was just the kind of person our little town needs: creative, talented, determined, giving, caring, invested. He gives a damn and it shows. Carl became an advocate for our town in what seemed like a second, joining (then leading) his neighborhood association, volunteering his time and photography to local causes, meeting everyone he could and befriending them all. And at the House, he charmed us all with his kindness and generosity. "Be The Carl" became our mantra for the example he set, reminding us to walk the walk. Needless to say, I feel lucky to have the opportunity to share a little more about Carl and his story today.
