In 2011, Carlos founded I.G. Advisors. I.G. is a strategy consultancy that provides philanthropy, corporate impact, and fundraising advice.

The firm works with a range of businesses and charities including LinkedIn, Amnesty International and the Islamic Development Bank. Social Misfits is a member of The Brewery, parent company of global communications agency freuds.

Driven by an interest in technology, Carlos understood the need for reliable, robust and practical digital support, tools, and expertise for beyond profit organisations. In 2014, he co-founded Lightful, a suite of social media publishing and fundraising tools. Lightful works with charities and social enterprises looking to scale their impact through the power of technology.

Carlos started his career as a major gifts fundraiser at the New York Public Library, and holds an MSc from the London School of Economics and a BA from New York University. He is fluent in Spanish, an avid sci-fi fan, and father to very rambunctious boy-girl twins; Carlos failed to convince his wife of the benefits of naming them Luke and Leia.
