He is an expert in the infrastructure development, construction, design, planning, and maintenance of transportation and irrigation systems, and the environmental impact mitigation, monitoring, and coordination of these activities. Worked for USAID in Iraq as Senior Management Officer for the infrastructure reconstruction and rehabilitation damaged by war in southern Iraq. Served as the environmental manager of the 240 km road reconstruction of the Banda Aceh to Meulaboh coastal highway damaged by the 2004 tsunami.
Carl was born up north above the Arctic Circle and brings survival instincts he learned up north to the south (Oregon) where he learned and enjoys camping, hiking, bird watching, commercial salmon fishing, hunting, wood working, scuba diving instructor and trainer, toastmaster, and is currently an avid artist in oil and acrylic painting.
Carl visited Kyiv, Ukraine as the USAID Bureau Environmental Officer 17 years ago and is currently here for only 2 months accompanying his wife, Magdalena, who is here working as the Executive Officer for USAID. Carl does the shopping and cooking. Together they are learning the Russian alphabet and a few social survival words and the alphabet which has helped us use the metro trains and above ground buses. They have visited many cathedrals, such as the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra (Monastery of the Caves), and other interesting sites: the Golden Gate, and the house of Victor Yanukovych. Without the wonderful Ukrainian people we’ve met, they would have been lost many times. They especially like eating out at the many restaurants and recently found an Ayurveda restaurant that serves all-vegetarian dishes. They hope to visit Odessa before they leave this great country.
