A 1992 Crater graduate, he was known in high school as Greg. He was a serious honor student and participated in football, wrestling and track. Upon graduation from Crater, Carlos attended Oregon State University, earning a degree in mechanical engineering. Soon after receiving his degree he took an idea that had been formulating in his mind for some time, and in 1999 he created Epic Scan Ltd. a premier 3D laser scanning company that provided services for the architectural, engineering and construction industries. As president of Epic Scan, Carlos developed and implemented laser scanning systems on hundreds of projects around the world. His archaeology/film job list includes working on Julius Kroehl’s submarine explorer in the Gulf of Panama, ancient quarry sites in Upper Egypt for a French television documentary production, a documentary of Chitchen Itza funded by the National Science Foundation and a Civil War submarine recovered in 2000 in Charleston, South Carolina. He even did a luge forensic analysis for the 2011 Winter Olympics in Whistler, British Colombia. Mr. Velazquez serves as Chair of the U.S. Institute of Building Documentation Standards Committee and has made numerous presentations at professional organization meetings, including the American Institute of Architects, the International Laser Scanning Conference and the Society for Historical Archaeology. Carlos has made more than 100 keynote and educational presentations at 3D technology conferences over the past 23 years.
In 2019, after 19 years, Carlos sold his business and began working for Stockpile Reports. After three years with this company, he once again started his own company, EveryPoint.
