A Texas native with over 25 years in Austin, Carlos has a keen sense of trends and emerging opportunities. His ability to envision what is possible has taken him from land development, through the international art world, and most recently to legal cannabis. Over four years ago, Carlos shifted his focus from the Texas real estate market to the emerging opportunities in the rapidly-growing legal cannabis industry, where he has participated as an advisor, consultant, and investor. In addition to this industry being a tremendous opportunity for investors, it unites Carlos’s passions as an advocate for wellness and health, personal liberty, social justice, and improving people’s lives and greater consciousness. Carlos is also an active advocate for Texas cannabis reform, and is frequently at the State Capital. This year, Carlos is launching a real-estate fund that is focused on the legal cannabis industry nationally.
