Carlos is a proud member of the Equity and SAG-AFTRA unions. As a bilingual, English/Spanish, actor he has performed in both media.
His TV credits include: All My Children and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. His Spanish Language (Telemundo) TV credits include: Reyes y Rey, Angeles, and Solo en America. Carlos has appeared in a number of independent film productions, Muñeca, Bhopal Express, Stung, Summer in LA, Tuesdays in the Gutter, My Name is Lance, West Bank of Brooklyn.
He has also performed in many Off Broadway and Off-Off Broadway venues in NYC and LA. Among his favorite is Boriquen Vive en el Barrio and Becoming Bernarda which were performed at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater stage in NYC (PRTT). The tradition of this extraordinary theater, which was founded by the famous Puerto Rican actress, has been that all shows are performed in English during specific days of the week and in Spanish on other designated days. Not only did these plays a reach diverse audience but as an actor the language of the dialogue brought out subtle and significant differences in the characters emotions depending on the language of the performance.
Through the years, Carlos performed in a number of productions that were part of NYC Annual International Fringe Festival, which began in 1997. He takes great pride to have appeared in Spanish Roulette, which was part of this first NYC Fringe Festival. Other productions included: Outside Man, The Revolutionaries, and Faded.
Carlos began his acting career later in life. Before discovering his passion for acting, Carlos taught Public Health Education at The City College of New York and York College and spent the latter part of his academic life as the first Vice President for the Division of Continuing Education and Workforce Development at Hostos Community College, City university of New York. In between his university experiences he served as the Executive Director of Lincoln Hospital in NYC. Carlos also published with his wife and collaborator, Marilyn Aguirre-Molina, three text books on the health status of Latinos in the US.
When Carlos finally gave in to his inner voice that kept telling him to become an actor, he was most fortunate to have stumbled upon one of the most creative and brilliant acting teachers in NYC, Dianne Ainslee. She was the only teacher that he met at the time who had developed a language and tools to teach the craft of acting in a way that was easy to grasp and internalize. She trained her actors using a myriad of stage drills. It was through these drills and her feedback that Carlos developed his rock solid foundation as an actor.
Carlos recently retired from his academic work and lives in Florida and will return to auditioning and acting once the COVID-19 pandemic is over and it is once safe again to go outside.
