“Mario has truly deepened my work as an actor and because of that I love and respect the art form more and more. He has taught me the importance of specificity more than any one and guides me to look inside myself to find the character’s truth. I booked a job in the first couple of months of working with him and have had a lot of good feedback and call backs from my auditions. But most of all he has a huge compassionate heart, I love him!”

A true safe space, where there is no BS or judgment. To feel supported and surrounded by wonderful like minded human beings who are brave and open.

It is a blessing to have him on your team!”
