Carlos is a Los Angeles born and Seattle raised Chicano. Growing up in an immigrant community, he quickly started to notice how broken the immigration system is and began working with his community and local youth to advocate for legislation that would benefit and give equal opportunity to undocumented students and their families. He started working with OneAmerica in 2010 through their youth leader program and has stayed connected since then.

Carlos is also an artist. Through his paintings, he celebrates Chicanx culture as well as his Afro-Mexican roots and reflects/criticizes his environment which are his biggest influence.
