Mario was born and raised in Chicago. He later attended the Illinois Institute of Technology where he received his Bachelor of Architecture.
He spends most of his free time with his wife and 4-year-old daughter, who he says brings joy and excitement into his day-to-day.
Mario and his family spend much of their time (and money) fixing up their home and rental unit in Chicago's Northwest side. They also find themselves hosting family and friends often, especially during cookout season. The little time he has to himself, he enjoys watching and following sports; from local sports to European soccer. Mario is a Chicago teams’ supporter, of course, and his wife would say he’s obsessed with fantasy football.

Favorite building in Chicago: Lake Point Tower
Favorite movie of all time: Pulp Fiction
Favorite Chicago sports team: Bears and Bulls! (cannot choose one over the other)
