A former associate editor of The New York Times Upfront magazine, Carl has been on the staff of the New York Daily News, the Home News Tribune, the Courier News, and The Marshall Project.

Managing Editor at IPVM

Carl earned an MS with honors from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and holds a BA in Communication with a Journalism concentration from Kean University.

As IPVM's first Managing Editor, Carl will oversee IPVM's rapidly growing News department, leading investigations into key industry topics such as secretly rigged fever cameras, sexual harassment and poor cybersecurity at the US' most prominent video surveillance startup, and human rights abuses against Uyghurs by PRC/China manufacturers.

Former Correctional Officer With Academic Experience

Prior to entering journalism, Carl served as a correctional officer. Firsthand experience in the security industry provides important perspective for reporting and understanding subscribers' needs and interests.

Additionally, Carl has taught at Kean University, where he is an adjunct professor in the Communication Department, since 2017. Throughout his academic career he has taught journalism to hundreds of students.

Both experiences, coupled with his editor background, will help Carl serve as a leader and mentor for the reporting team. His addition to IPVM is a significant step forward in enhancing the volume and reach of our reporting.
