At 21 Carter moved to San Francisco from DC to pursue community management full time at UserVoice after working at the Ad Council in campaign management and social media agency HelpsGood on The United Way. At 22 he founded his own nonprofit The LittleBigFund where he uses his community management knowhow to empower people to work together towards a common goal of helping others. His career ambitions are thanks to Google+ where he is a suggested user with over 750,000 followers due to his opinions on humanities, LGBT issues, tech, and curation of the PridePlus community.
