Coach Carlos is a Pacific Northwest native, through and through. He has lived in the Greater Seattle area since the age of three, played soccer from as early as he can remember, including at Eastside FC from 2009 to 2016, and attended the University of Washington, graduating in 2020. Though, his deepest roots extend to Mexico City, where he was born in and has family still.
Becoming a coach is something Carlos thought he would eventually do one day but is ecstatic that "one day" came sooner than later. Having been a part of a few EFC teams already, he most enjoys helping develop players into strong, confident, and joyful people on and off the pitch, while cultivating a sense of unity and belonging within the team to give fruition to the best results as a collective unit. Coach Carlos feels blessed that he has been able to begin his coaching journey at EFC where he has learned from veteran coaches and grown with other fellow new coaches, knowing he has support any where he looks within the club, as he works towards obtaining his USSF Coaching Licenses.
When not out coaching, you can find Carlos looking for new local spots to enjoy a good meal at, spending time with his friends and family, and cheering on his favorite team, Manchester United!
