Real Estate Investor
Lisa Gibbons Carloss lives in Studio City, CA with Alex, her husband of 24 years, her two children, her mom and two dogs. A native of Houston, Texas, she earned a BA in Spanish from the University of Dallas, and an MBA from Rice University in Houston. A job offer from Walt Disney’s International Home Entertainment group brought her to LA. For the next seven years, she held senior positions in distribution and marketing, traveling the world extensively and helping to establish Disney as a market leader in home entertainment.
A VP role at Turner Pictures Worldwide Distribution followed, with responsibilities for marketing and distribution of theatrical and home entertainment products internationally. She then founded her first company, which distributed independent feature films to international television markets. She named it Mambo Media in a nod to her love of Latin ballroom dancing.
After the birth of her two children, Lisa recognized that she was 1) a compulsive nurturer, and 2) a lover of all things orderly; and felt that two parents in the international entertainment business was a recipe for domestic chaos. She devised an alternate plan, and currently spends her days doing volunteer work, managing a real estate portfolio and two LLCs, and orchestrating the lives of her home and family.
She has a passion for family life, skiing, trees, great food and wine, and international travel. She is good with spreadsheets and Phillips head screwdrivers. She put herself through college and graduate school working as many as three jobs at a time; and believes that almost anybody can do almost anything, if they believe that they can.
