He is also a licensed Architect in Ecuador, where he collaborated with CA+SA on various residential and commercial projects.

In addition to his professional practice, Mario dedicates his time to education and community engagement. He has been a visiting lecturer and review critic at several universities in Ecuador, India, Peru, and the USA, where he shares his insights on urban design and the future of cities. Mario also co-founded Creative Roots-Ecuador, a non-profit organization that focused on tactical urbanism projects, earning recognition from the local government for its innovative initiatives and community impact.
