Carl started reading F&SF in his pre-teen years and has been hooked ever since. He became involved with fandom back in the 1970s (by way of the SCA in Southern California) and is one of the founding members of Lambda Sci-Fi: DC Area Gaylaxians. He really enjoys moderating discussion panels at conventions and is looking forward to participating in RavenCon again this year. Mundanely, Carl is the program manager for instructor-training in a much-maligned, three-letter government agency.
