They have two dogs, a Lab mix named "Sparky" and an amusing Pomeranian who goes by "Puki." They also own two lovebirds who, oddly enough don't have a name. Mario lost his father eight days before his first birthday. He never had the chance to know him. As a result of his father's tragic demise, he has grown up battling various mental health issues. Depression and anxiety are but a few of the symptoms he fights every day. One of the ways he copes with his struggles is by writing. Despite his mental health challenges, he still manages to advocate for what he believes in. Many people that know him will tell you that he is very passionate about veterans and their families.
