Carlos was born into a humble Brazilian household in Minas Gerais. One of nine children, Carlos’ father was a local butcher and his mother, a homemaker. Together, they led by example and instilled the principles of family, hard work, discipline, and values into the children’s everyday lives. These principles grounded the family, bound them together, and provided Carlos with an unrelenting drive to learn, determination to overcome obstacles, and improve the lives of others. This drive would take Carlos to the United States with three hundred dollars in his pocket where he would enter an unpaid internship and would have to work in several jobs to make it happen.
