With a pedigree from a line of artisans and architects, he finished multi-disciplinary courses in sculpture, painting and light design at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco (2000-2003). He then moved to London and graduated at Architectural Association School of Architecture (2009).

His works seek to blend the boundaries between art and architecture. His design practice, Carlo Calma Consultancy, Inc., also challenges itself to cross scales and media from bespoke private homes to public installations that have been called "young," "edgy," and "very impressive." His works have been said to be culturally informed, blending disciplines and surmounting limitations with new modes of being and technology.
