Mario is a major film buff who's thankful his parents let him watch all the classics, even horror and science-fiction. Mario studied film at York University in Toronto before earning a degree in English. He became a journalist and began writing everything from theatre and movie reviews as well as profiles and business, sports and entertainment stories for a number of different newspapers, magazines and websites. An avid hockey fan, he was thrilled to meet and interview players from his favorite team, the Calgary Flames, for his very first article in Clik Magazine. He's also appeared on two Canadian TV programs discussing journalism. More recently, Mario wrote articles on food and transportation for the Pasadena Magazine and on sports and movies for Yahoo.
Mario lives with his wife and son in Los Angeles.
