Born in Bogotá, Colombia and trained as an architect with a Masters degree from Tulane University, Carlos
Barbosa’s professional career started in New Orleans at the firm of Perez Associates where he was hired as a staff
designer planning the 1984 Louisiana World’s Exposition.
He was later recruited by architect Charles Moore’s Los Angeles firm of MRY. This brought him to Los Angeles where the world of designing for the silver screen became a real possibility and an alternative career.
Helping a friend by designing his student film at USC was Carlos’ first introduction into the world of entertainment but the real chance came when he was given the opportunity to work on Ultraviolet, a low budget Roger Corman film project, his first credit as a production designer and his hands on education into film making.
Today his credits as a production designer include Season Eight and the pilot of 24 for which he was nominated for an Emmy, Lost, CSI-Miami, Studio 60, Action, Coach Carter, The Invisible, and Hurricane Season among many others.
In addition to filmmaking Carlos continues to practice as an architect and has completed projects in Louisiana and California.
