Hello, I'm Mario.

Part creative, part strategist, I bring together ideas, words, and design to create engaging brand experiences that drive impactful results. My areas of specialty include branding, creative campaign development, and content marketing strategy. I am currently an Art Director and Creative Team Lead at Hotwire’s Digital Brand Lab in New York. 

Aside from design, I am equally passionate about working towards closing the opportunity gap for underserved communities. During my spare time I am a Mentor Coach and Mentor Leadership Council member with America Needs You, an organization that fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first-generation college students by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development.

I'm originally from the Bay Area, California and hold a bachelor of science degree in visual communication design with a minor in marketing from San Francisco State University. I love tacos, tequila, and dogs.
