About Me

Hello! My name is Mario and I'm a firm believer in the web's ability to empower individuals.

During college I had joined a friend's international trade startup, where I used my then-sparse knowledge of HTML and CSS to elevate our humble business to a profitable status. I joined a coding bootcamp soon after college to see how big of an impact I could make with a little more know-how.

Fast forward to today, and I've had the privilege of participating in several hackathons—even winning some—and working at companies of all sizes, from small startups to "Big Tech".

My journey continues to grow and I have nothing but optimism for what the future will bring!
