About Los

Name: Macasaet, Carlos
Occupation: Software Engineer

My name is Carlos Macasaet. My nicknames include Los (L0s), Los Lobos and many variations thereof. I am currently a software engineer at Edmunds in the Los Angeles area. I graduated from the Johns Hopkins University (class of 2005) in Baltimore, MD with a degree in Computer Science.

Prior to joining Edmunds, I was a Programmer Analyst at Esoterix, Inc., a LabCorp company.

At JHU, I was the Systems Administrator for two years and Chair for one year of the Association for Computing Machinery. I also worked in IT for the Language Lab.

Before my time at Johns Hopkins, I spent my high school years at the Winchester Thurston School (class of 2001) in Pittsburgh, PA. I also studied at the Seton Center Suzuki School of Music and the Pittsburgh Music Academy where I studied piano and occasionally cello.

The Old Testament Book of Job as well as Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story, Wakefield, examine the existential difference between life as having and life as being. Dashiell Hammett introduces this idea in The Maltese Falcon through the story Samuel Spade tells about a man named Flitcraft. Hammet further explores this concept by defining life, not by being or having, but by doing. To learn more about what I do, see my interests page.
