Carson found interest in investing early in life when his 4-H checks were put into mutual funds. Looking at the statements and seeing the values fluctuate had him interested in learning more. He graduated with a Finance major and Economics minor from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. His career began in 2013 at Mutual of Omaha working with both investments and insurance. In April 2022 Carson joined the Black Oak office.
Carson and his wife, Ali, have two children, Collins and Archer. Their kids and dog, Bo, keep them very busy. When they have spare time, they enjoy spending it with their families, going to the farm, or doing house projects.
