Carl Creasman grew up in a small rural East Tennessee community -- no traffic lights and only two stop signs. A competitive swimmer, he had a pending scholarship to Auburn University when a career-ending injury ended that dream. Undaunted, he still attended Auburn where he proved himself as an elite student leader. Carl was inducted into Auburn's "Top 10 Sophomores" Honor Society (Squires) and commanded the stage as the intro emcee at "The Auburn Free Movie."
Carl graduated Auburn with a Bachelor's, double majoring in History and Psychology. After college, he completed his Master's Degree in History and later, earned a Master's of Divinity. During this time, Carl began what would be a lifelong passion for speaking and working with young adults.
Carl has been a featured speaker for events all over the country and world, from Seattle to Florida, New Mexico to Boston, Haiti to England.
Carl's uncommon ability to connect with people as a communicator comes in part from his diverse work background. Carl has coached an Olympic training swim team, worked in construction, and served as Student Pastor of a Central Florida church.
Carl has authored three books and contributed to a history textbook. He has also recorded five studio CDs with his band, Anodyne, and serves as Senior Pastor of a vibrant, young Central Florida church.
Since 2002, Carl has been a Professor of History at Valencia Community College, one of America's top community colleges. At VCC, Carl is known as a professor who challenges his students to work hard, strive for excellence, and-- above all-- to Live Well.
