This month we’re excited for you to meet Carlos. He’s easygoing, patient, committed and intelligent. A natural leader, he easily gets buy in from his peers due to his broad knowledge base and communication style. He’s a big teddy bear, willing to share all his experience with those willing to learn.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Chicago, IL. I loved going to the sporting events and going downtown. I’m a Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, and Chicago Bulls fan and I have tattoos of all three teams.

Where do you live now?

Now I live in Jordan, MN with my wife, son, and daughter. I met my wife 25 years ago. My son is a senior and my daughter is a sophomore, both at Jordan High School.
