Carlos originally wanted to be a football/soccer coach while teaching math at a high school. When he learned that he needed a masters degree in order to teach which meant 6yrs of school, he quickly changed my mind. At the time, the first Iron Man movie was playing in theaters and when he watched it, he knew he wanted to be an engineer. K2M’s core value “Nurture Relationships” speaks to Carlos the most because it allows friendships to be made. Friendships create loyalty and an environment where coworkers are no longer seen as coworkers, but as friends and family.
