Director Biography - Mario Villavicencio

Born and raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador, Mario Villavicencio is a Film & Media Arts recent graduate from the University of Tampa. Having graduated with a B.S. in International Business from Ecuador, he moved to the United States to pursue his true passion for film after having worked as a payroll consultant for 2 years.
