Mario is an experienced .NET developer and Umbraco MVP.

Mario began his career as a 3D and motion graphics designer, later transitioning into freelance programming. After moving to Australia from Spain, he started learning .NET and C# and became an expert in Umbraco. 

He has been an active member of the Umbraco community ever since, and in 2021 was awarded the title of Umbraco MVP. During that time he has developed a number of Umbraco plugins, written articles, mentored emerging Umbraco developers, and helped to organise UDuf – the Umbraco Down Under Festival.

Mario prides himself on focusing not just on the user experience of a CMS but also the editor experience, an area he feels is often overlooked.
