About 

Carlos is an internationally recognized architect with over ten years experience in the fields of architecture; design and construction; project, team and firm management. He is a registered architect in the states of California and Louisiana, and carries two degrees of Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Architecture from Tulane University in New Orleans.

In the field of architecture, his work has been featured in international architecture magazines, honored with an installation at the Ogden Museum of Art, addressed City Councils as a proponent of his design for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and helped to implement new technologies not yet addressed in building codes. His web design clients range from various medical practices to a boutique bed and breakfast in the heart of New Orleans' Bywater neighborhood, while his graphic design claims clients such as Joule Energy and the HBO Network.

Carlos firmly believes in stressing the importance of new material technology and utilizing the contemporary architect's digital toolbox.
