Meet: Carlos Ubeda

I was born and raised in San Pedro Sula. I’m the second child of four. All of us artists and animal lovers.

People usually think I am grumpy, but in reality, I'm just really quiet and shy, at first, but once you get to know me, you’ll see.

The arts are my passion. I studied at the Centro Cultural Infantil since 2002 until 2016. I'm a classical ballet and contemporary dancer. I'm currently part of Danza 504, an independent dance company that four of my best friends and I direct. I also enjoy painting and taking pictures.

I'm currently studying Agronomy. I know, weird. But my dream is to open a dance school and a photography studio. And once I’m ready for retirement, I want to have a little country house.

I love taking photos for my dance company and have recently been experimenting with video as well. I like learning new stuff and being physically active. That’s why I have tried a lot of different activities such as weight lifting, crossfit, hit training, boxing and mixed martial arts. But dancing is definitely my favorite one.

Working for Grindr helps you learn to deal with all sorts of personalities, which has been helpful for me, especially now that our dance company opened a class for people who don't have a background in dancing.

Well, gotta say bye now, and there's only one way for me to do it. Hit the music!
