Biography

Longtime Las Vegas local and celebrated creative and marketing director, Carlos Larios has worked with some of the best operators in the service industry business while designing and coordinating all creative and graphic design elements for a laundry list of popular past and present nightlife destinations.

It all started back in 2000 when he made the move to Las Vegas to help oversee the creative and graphic initiatives of the famed Club Utopia (Las Vegas' 1st Nightclub). From there he joined the team at RA Nightclub, formerly at the Luxor, as the team's Creative Director. This would lead to the same position within PURE Management Group, the operators of some of the country's hottest nightclubs. He would oversee the creation of all branding, development and advertising campaigns for over a dozen venues, while at the same time managing PMG's (now AMG) massive on-line marketing campaigns.
