Carlos João Parreira
A Portuguese expat now living in Brooklyn, Carlos began his career in contemporary art galleries and hasn't left the NY design world since. From joining Jonathan Adler’s world of ‘happy chic’ to the luxury digital agencies where he managed online efforts for high-end fashion, home and beauty businesses, he's bridged his passion for design, technology and business throughout.
After experiencing the inner workings of these successful design businesses and tapping into a family history of entrepreneurship, he's thrilled to be on this next journey with LUSITANO1143.
