Carl is determined to build efficient, integrated and sustainable housing facilities with expert technology that is affordable to the ordinary Ghanaian family and to reduce the housing deficit by 25% in 7 years. He currently builds hostel facilities and provides subsidized accommodation to underprivileged students.  He supports the development in the community by helping underprivileged women start sustainable businesses with 15% of profits from his housing projects.  With millions of hardworking families unable to afford decent housing, his desire is to ensure that every family is able to afford a home in their lifetime. A vision that was inspired by his difficulties as a child growing up in Ghana.

He was a senior manager for strategic outsourced operations for a fortune 500 company in the USA with responsibility for 22 states before returning to Ghana to start his venture to meet the housing need. Carl earned a bachelor and master degrees from the University of Texas at Arlington. He has a BIG heart for the underprivileged and started the nonprofit, CSDMF foundation. He is the founding member of broken crayons and the PAIS project in Ghana. Both are nonprofit organizations which focuses on transforming the lives of families in undeserved communities.

Carl love’s soccer, swimming and enjoys volunteering in his community. He has led many mission trips to Ghana. He also speaks on social issues that help provide employment for the youth. He is currently enrolled at MIT in the Executive MBA program at the Sloan School of Management.
