Carlos has a degree from the University of California, Berkeley with a double major in English and Media studies. He was the Arts & Entertainment editor for The Daily Californian, Berkeley's largest print and online publication. In 2011 he won the Eisner Prize, Berkeley's most prestigious award for the arts.
Most recently he worked for the Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco, the non-profit organization that manages the online encyclopedia Wikipedia. While there, he was the primary copyeditor and copywriter for the Foundation's communications department. He also managed and curated the Foundation's blog. Carlos had the unique opportunity to collaborate with writers from around the world that contributed to the blog - often providing copy editing, translation, and other services in an effort to construct an all-inclusive Wiki community. While at the Foundation, he also managed all social media accounts, drafted press releases, and wrote blog posts on a regular basis.
Carlos also has freelance writing experience. Some of his work has been published on Yahoo and other major sites. He is most knowledgeable on topics relating to technology, media, politics, sports, and entertainment, but has an array of other interests. In his free time he loves writing film criticism, and at times has written on a volunteer basis for various smaller independent film websites.
