What do you enjoy? Are you making it your career, or just dreaming about it?On this episode of the VIP Ignite podcast, your host Deneen White is excited to introduce you to Karl Licht.Karl had the opportunity to travel the world while enlisted into the US Navy. He has always enjoyed entertaining people. He began entertaining professionally as a full-contact mounted jouster at a couple of mid-west renaissance fairs. Then moved on to portray King Robert Bruce, at a third. Karl then decided to pursue acting, and after landing some minor roles in various local film projects knew this is what he wanted to do with his life. He is a military veteran, having served honorably in both the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Army. He also took part in Operation Desert Storm. Karl was a founding father of the Sigma-Omega Chapter of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.Two inspirations that Karl has from the acting world are Charlton Heston and Jon Voight. They are inspirations and acting heroes to Karl for the same reason. Both are extremely successful actors and had/have incredible careers, yet both remain humble and treat others as equals. Karl had the pleasure to meet both men on two separate occasions. Karl has two goals for his acting career; A: be able to support himself completely by acting, and B: to become a card-carrying SAG member. Once he completes both these goals, he will consider himself an acting success. After that, it is all icing on the cake.
