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 pursue challenges, overcome obstacles, and improve the lives of others. These pursuits would lead Carlos to the U.S. at the age of 23 for an unpaid law internship.
