My name is Carlos Lastres, a Costa Rican native and current China transplant. I’m an MBA, Software Engineer, and Senior Product Designer.

Living as an ex-pat allows me to tap into my design, marketing and, creative skills in different ways by always being out of my comfort zone. Always looking for a good cup of coffee and eager to work with like-minded brands.

I have over 12 years of experience working for companies worldwide and pride myself in working cross-culturally with people in Latin America, Asia, Europe, and the U.S. I have been featured on Chinese media such as CCTV4, “In Zhejiang,” FM89, and delivered a TEDx Talk in Hangzhou, China, in 2019.
