Carmichael's experience includes a nine-month internship at The Story with Dick Gordon, a nationally-syndicated radio program aired on NPR, where he produced several segments. Most recently, he has served as an adjunct professor of photojournalism at UNC-Chapel Hill. He earned bachelor's degrees in finance and economics from Indiana University in 2002.
