Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1931, Karl grew up in small town America, adventuring along the shores of Lake Erie. An only child to Milda and Wilbur, Karl took his cue from his father, an adventurous risk taker who worked as a motorcycle police officer and an owner of several businesses. Karl’s early life accomplishments include:
- B.S. in Accounting, Ohio University
- 2nd Lieutenant & Aide de Camp, United States Army

Despite the excitement of working and traveling abroad for many years, Karl, a philosopher at heart, did not find the personal satisfaction he sought in his work. Realizing he would never find happiness as a salaried employee, Karl returned to the United States to start his own business in Los Angeles.
The perpetual student, Karl happily started at the bottom and worked as a janitorial company sales representative to learn the business from the ground up. By day, he sold janitorial services and by night, he cleaned toilets. Diligently Karl worked his way up to the position of top sales representative and then to sales manager. Once Karl knew the business completely, he left and formed his own janitorial company.
Karl’s janitorial company fared well and over time he built the business up to a staff of twenty-five janitors. Having mastered business ownership, Karl sold the business to pursue his goal of professional public speaker. He began, once again at the bottom and joined several Toastmaster clubs, speaking at hundreds of meetings for local service clubs, even receiving pay on occasion.
Through his public speaking engagements and while selling an oral chelation product for another company, Karl learned about vitamins and heart disease. A defining moment was when his mother died suddenly of an aneurysm. Heart-broken, Karl sought answers from the doctors, about why his mother died. The response was, "Nobody knows the cause of heart disease." Dissatisfied with the doctor's answers, Karl began research, which ultimately became his greatest skill and calling. Dr. Elmer Cranton changed Karl’s life forever. Karl discovered the book, Bypassing Bypass and turned toward alternative treatments for heart disease. After vigilant self-study of heart disease, and conferring with professionals in alternative health fields, Karl realized he could formulate a better supplement than the one he was selling. He and his wife, Jean Ross, formed Vibrant Life. What started out as a simple mail order vitamin company grew and today sells vitamins to health conscious people worldwide.
Karl became a sought after alternative health and vitamin guest speaker on radio and television shows and eventually landed his own late night radio show. Thirty hours a week, Karl broadcasted his views and had hundreds of fascinating guests.
Among his regular guests was a man Karl refers to as the Healer, who operated the most successful cancer clinic in Mexico. Karl learned an enormous amount about health through his affiliation with the Healer and discovered how mainstream medicine often suppresses the truth about disease.
In recent years, Karl has turned his talents almost exclusively to research and writing. While he still enjoys public speaking, his passion is research. Simply stated, Karl is a man of driven purpose, passionate about his ideas and work, and eager to help solve the world’s health problems.
