Carey is a writer, comedian, filmmaker, and actor based in the Charlotte, NC (USA) metro area. In 2010 he left an 18-year career as an IT executive to start an independent company. In 2013, as a break from the seriousness of his consulting business, he took a weekend improv course.
Carey’s weekend hobby quickly evolved into a new full-time pursuit of creativity. By 2014, he had joined the cast of Charlotte Comedy Theater, launched the Igno-Rants podcast, and shut down his consulting business. In 2015, Careymade his first foray into film with “Clocking Out”, a short which won BEST IN CITY award at the Charlotte 48 Hour Film Project. He has since written, produced, and/or directed 4 additional shorts and a web series.
When not working on creative pursuits, Carey spends his time cooking, hunting, watching his beloved Crimson Tide, and homeschooling three boys.
