I met Mariano this year while we were working on a commercial together. He’s got quite a story… taken from his abusive home as a young child, Mariano then bounced around in and out of a series of foster homes and schools, never finding any real roots. Throughout this time, however, he was forging a strength of his own and found his calling in the military and eventually professional fighting. Eventually, Mariano began acting in movies and TV and is headed for a new challenge in life. Listen as Mariano breaks down professional (and unlicensed) fighting, “juicing” (not your fruits & veggies) and being a tough guy in Hollywood.
