Carter's first published story was on pet poop bylaws in Ottawa. He likes to think he's gone far since then, branching out and crafting stories on subjects ranging from learning disabilities and construction to business trends. He's even been known to interview the odd celebrity like actor Henry Winkler and lawyer Lesra Martin (The Hurricane).
With a decade's experience under his belt, Carter's precise and engaging prose has been featured in everything from press releases to funding proposals; web sites to position papers in various print and electronic media. He's employed emergency life-saving procedures on hundreds of resumes and created well-received lesson plans for province-wide educational workshops on careers and disabilities that have kept them coming back for more.
Carter's contributed dozens of articles to numerous national, regional and local publications, including The Toronto Sun, Toronto Star, Ottawa Citizen, Smart Connections, Canadian Trees, Beautiful Communities, Abilities, Dogs in Canada and Family Camping.
He currently edits two magazines: Convenience and Carwash Canada, a bimonthly national trade publication serving the convenience, carwash and petroleum industries, and Communique, a semi-annual magazine celebrating neurodiversity.
He is the author of three books, including Community Connections (2001), Benchmarking: A Guide to Hiring and Managing Persons with Learning Disabilities(2005) and Conscious Competence: A Guide to Mentoring Persons with Learning Disabilities (2006).Carter holds a Bachelor of Community Studies degree, a diploma in journalism and a certificate in Adult Education.
When he's not dotting i's and crossing t's, Carter can be found roaming The Bruce Trail or rummaging through bookstores in search of Batman graphic novels. He enjoys volunteering with the Workers Education Association of Canada, which organizes university-level courses in the humanities within community-based settings. He currently lives in Toronto.
