Carlos or C2 as he is fondly called at Peak Support, is a sweet and family-oriented young man. He lists Christmas as his favorite holiday, not so much for the gifts, but more so because it brings his family together. Carlos isn’t too particular about where to go for a vacation, as long as he’s with his loved ones. The one food that he will never get tired of eating would be Laing (Pinangat) - a Filipino meal from the Bicol region. After a long day at work, you’ll usually find Carlos either sleeping or watching a movie on Netflix. He hopes to one day see Michael Buble and John Legend in concert. An interesting fact about Carlos? He doesn’t like any nuts in his ice cream. Read the latest edition of the Peak Support Q&A blog now and get to know Carlos even more.
