At the age of 10, Mauro's family moved to Sweden, where he spent his adolescent years. It was in Sweden that he was first introduced to American cowboys movies and the bodybuilding world depicted in Pumping Iron that sparked his love and dream to come and live in America (to become both a cowboy and bodybuilder). It was also during this time that Mauro began working out with former Mr. Europe, Janko Rudman.
At age 17, just prior to finishing high school, he left home to do pursue his "American" dream while traversing the globe along the way. In all, Mauro circled the globe twice and visited over 25 countries, working odd jobs along the way, before arriving in Los Angeles.

He then continued his focus on bodybuilding, eventually becoming Mr. Venice Beach himself.
With his fitness and bodybuilding background, Mauro got into personal fitness training business. Having reached the pinnacle of that career Mauro moved on to pursue a new interest--acting. Returning to Los Angeles, Mauro connected with a talent agent and began his acting career. With his strong physique and dark features, he found television roles guest starring on Days of Our Lives, The Bold and Beautiful, The Practice. He also found work being cast in countless smaller roles in indie films. He even got to beat up Jimmy Fallon on a comedy called 'The $cheme'.
By accident, or perhaps not, Mauro discovered his true passion was in producing when he produced/starred & Co-directed the short indie 'Hercules in Hollywood'.
