Carlos was born in San Diego and raised in the Imperial Valley. He began playing tennis in the summer of 1982 after growing up playing baseball. Carlos played high school tennis for Vincent Memorial and college tennis for IVC and Southwestern College. He attended San Diego State University and earned a B.A. in Physical Education Teaching.
He started his racquet stringing career while working at a Pro Shop in the Imperial Valley. Carlos also worked for Oshman’s Sporting Goods as a manager, while training and teaching employees how to string racquets. For nine years as a USPTA professional, Carlos was a tennis instructor for the South Bay Junior Tennis Program that was located on the Southwestern College campus. He is getting back into what he loves doing: running a pro shop, stringing racquets and eventually teaching tennis again.
