Mario grew up in Southern California from a very young age, after his family immigrated to the US from Mexico. He earned his Bachelors in Architecture in 2002 from the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. He began his architectural career at Carlile Coatsworth Architects, Inc. in Irvine until his move to Fort Worth in 2010. Quorum Architects, Inc. welcomed him into the firm with open arms ever since, and has provided a broad range of architectural services to clients including schematic design, construction documents and construction administration.
Although Mario does not work directly with animals, he has a particular soft spot in his heart for their care and wellness. He took the initiative to work with Dr. Jaramillo in the design and development of St. Francis Veterinary Clinic, with the ultimate goal of providing a home environment with the best accommodations to our clientele. While working at Quorum, he has also contributed in the design conception and design development for facilities such as Animal Rescue and Adoption Centers, Senior Living Facilities and Veterinary Clinics.
Since his arrival in Fort Worth, Mario has made an effort to stay involved in the community, donating innumerable hours of his personal time to several organizations including The Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Steer FW, Meals on Wheels and Habitat for Humanity. He also maintains good standing with the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects at the associate level membership. For leisure, he enjoys spending time with his wife, 2 toddlers, and their dogs Noce and Pechan. Currently, his favorite pastime is to finish and improve the habitat for Kali, our pet water turtle. Mario is very active and loves riding his motorcycle, and playing soccer for a local amateur football club (Sporting Fort Worth Football Club, member of the FWASA).
