His career began in Boston, MA, as he ambitiously sought out modeling opportunities in the Northeast coast: booking fashion shows for community fundraisers, small boutiques, and eventually working behind the scenes of gala events in the metropolitan Boston and New York area. Alan Carlos has been published in several magazines and can be found at www.alanpelaezmodel.com. Experiences range from working with local photographers and companies, to international photographers from the UK, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela. He is exited to continue his career as a model while maintaining his activism in Boston and New York City.
