Mariano is an Emmy nominated documentary director, producer and cinematographer based in Brooklyn, NY.
Born and raised in Lima, Peru, he came to New York City, 13 years ago. For the past four years, he’s been working as an in house filmmaker at CNN’s documentary unit “Great Big Story” where he’s made some of the most cinematic (and highest viewed) videos on the internet.
Before CNN, Mariano worked at VICE Media for 5 years, creating original content about food, music, news, travel, and culture.
He’s a proud alumni and film major of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where he has since returned as a guest lecturer on documentary film.
Mariano loves to cook, especially dishes from his native Peru (including an excellent family ceviche recipe) and has a growing collection of Latin American records.
