Carl grew up in an orphanage between ages 6 and 15, and was a keen sportsman, long distance running and playing soccer in school.
He left the orphanage at aged 15, switched off, left school with no direction, and got caught up in the negative influences of life on the street.
Through depression at ages 17-18, he went through a mental breakdown followed by an emotional breakthrough, and reconnected with long distance running.
With over 30 years experience as a professional sportsman, coach and mentor, Carl has been developing the EnergyWize University Of Life 5 Step System. The core of his work is with youth.
