Speaking

The best businesses truly seek to deliver an unmatched customer experience. Carlos will speak at your next event to help people understand and begin to create a culture where an employee becomes an exquisite host. It’s all about being intentional in taking the time, using creativity, and generating the effort needed to create a memorable experience. Carlos spent 16 years working at Apple Stores and mastered the art of delivering an exceptional customer experience.

Most people believe working for a great organization is all about easy and relaxing work. In reality, doing great work is about identifying problems and solving them with people that you trust, respect, and can hold each other accountable. Carlos can speak at your next event and create a mindset shift in your organization.

If you think about it, most everything you see and enjoy began with an idea that someone wrote down and kept working on until it became a reality; a business, product, restaurant, clothes, films, books, articles, comedy set, tv show, etc. the list goes on forever. Writing is such a powerful tool that we’ve most of us have overlooked. There’s something magical that happens when we put pen to paper, science tells us there is nothing that replicates that experience neurologically. For those that take the time to write a log and then reflect on what they do, the power of writing creates an unmatched growth opportunity. We learn by reflecting on our experiences. Let me tell you how at your next event.

Consulting

Tune into my Instagram to see when the next batch is released.

Carlos was born in Michoacan, Mexico. He arrived in Santa Ana, CA at the tender age of one and a half. Orange County was the only home he knew until relocating to Montana in 2018.

When he started school he was enrolled in ESL (English as a Second Language) and found himself falling behind in learning English. He found comfort in the fact that a drawing can communicate a thousand words. No need to speak broken English.

In elementary school, his favorite thing to draw was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Later it was The Simpsons and then all the classic Disney Films from the 90s. He annoyed his brother by pausing VHS movies to draw his favorite characters and scenes.

After high school he studied Graphic Design, Animation, and Illustration. He’s been published numerous times and has won multiple awards.

He’s been attracted to 2D artwork his entire life. Cartoons from the 1960s; Looney Tunes, The Jetsons, Bugs Bunny & The Roadrunner. There was something about those bold lines and simple shapes that conveyed so much emotion.

He could never figure out how to create those lines and shapes by hand. Until one day he rediscovered the Pen Tool and had a breakthru. It’s a modern day digital chisel and he’s spent countless hours mastering it to create his digital work. He can now create any shape that comes to his mind and uses the Pen Tool to create his unique digital illustrations.

He’s started to work with ProCreate using an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. The best is yet to come. He looks back at his life and wonders; “If he had stayed in Mexico, would he have ever touched a computer or been given the chance to create his artwork and share it with the world?”

His father was a farmer then, what would he have become?

Carlos is forever grateful to be able to live in the best country on earth. God Bless the U.S.A.
