Bio: Carlo has competed in numerous types of endurance and ultra events from rowing, running, cycling and swimming.

A four year (93-97) varsity rower, Carlo was named the Most Valuable Oarsmen during his senior year. Post college, he coached at UCDavis spending one year as the Assistant Varsity Coach and then a second year as Novice Coach. After a four year hiatus, Carlo returned to coaching at Santa Clara University where he coached for six years, four of which he served as the Head Women’s Varsity Coach.
