“I love to work with our diverse clients. Each provides new challenges and opportunities to think creatively.”
A native of Lima, Peru, Mario was fascinated as a child with creating art. Influenced by the work of Salvador Dalí, Mario decided to pursue a career in graphic arts. He moved to Richmond, Virginia, where he attended Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design. Mario is currently pursuing an MBA with an emphasis in Marketing degree at San Diego State University, which he is expecting to complete by December 2020.
After graduating from VCU, Mario worked as an in-house graphic designer for a health insurance agency before launching his own marketing agency focused on providing service to the Hispanic market in San Diego. In 2013, Mario joined Wealth Management Marketing, which later became Kaleido Creative Studio, as a Graphic Designer. As a Graphic Designer at Kaleido, Mario is responsible for the vision and direction of our design. He enjoys working with clients who are willing to take a risk to do something bold.
Outside of work, Mario uses his skill as a designer to support the San Diego County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and works with other local small businesses.
When he isn’t working, Mario enjoys traveling with his wife, Valeria; eating Peruvian food; and playing, watching and talking, about soccer.
