A graduate of the Mass Communications program at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Carter has been a resident of Lafayette since 2012 and began his media career in 2017 in radio production.

As a child, Carter grew up in the picturesque community of Covington, Louisiana. A member of a musical family, he spent many weekends traveling with them to music festivals and events throughout south Louisiana to celebrate the unique music, food and fellowship the state has to offer.

Carter has a great love and appreciation for the Louisiana lifestyle—from fishing and crabbing in the lakes and bayous to grilling boudin or cooking a cauldron of jambalaya at a tailgate event. Passionate about sports and music, he is proud to live in a state that boasts incredible sports teams and so many different genres of local music. And as a self-proclaimed foodie with a penchant for hot sauces, the local cuisine never fails to satisfy his envie for spicy flavors.
