Born in Monterrey, Mexico in 1972, he showed an affinity for drawing at an early age. His passion quickly latched on to comic books, which he quickly took to emulate to develop his skills.
His first break came after a trip to the San Diego ComiCon in 1996 where he came in contact with publishers at Dark Horse, who gave him his first break into the industry on their flagship Dark Horse Presents book where he drew four stories for the anthology series.
After two years as a pencil artist, Carlo was hired by DC Comics™ to draw JLA Jr., Superman, Impulse, Batman Orphans, JLU, Outsiders, Blue Bettle, Flash and Batman Brave and the Bold.
Years after his residency at DC, Carlo took over drawing duties for several titles for Marvel, includingNew Mutants, a mini-series called Ororo: Before the Storm, some pages for an X-Force annual and an Age of X short story in issue one, Spiderman books, Scarlet Spider, Thunderbolts, Amazing X-Men and Amazing Spiderman ,and the all-around fan favorite Deadpool, rising in popularity as an artist.
Currently, Carlo is working on Green Lanterns with DC as well as plans for a title of his own creation.
