Carlos was born in a small town called Sodus, NY. He is a choreographer, drummer, percussionist, music producer, dancer, and teacher. He first started playing music in church – and constantly found himself banging on trash, more than his own instruments. Then came Stomp. One of the longest running cast members, Carlos had more than 20 years with the show before transitioning to teaching music full time with the New York City Department of Education. Carlos continues to choreograph and serve as a master teaching artist and he gives thanks to God, mom, Bill, Robyn, and his close friends.
