Mario Gonzales

Acting / MA

I'm a Chicago native. I moved to San Francisco in 2018 to pursue a BFA in Acting at Academy of Art University, having been awarded a Presidential Scholarship. I began taking classes in screenwriting and directing as well as acting, and I now consider myself a filmmaker. My film about addiction, This Is Goodbye, won the Award for Best Film Under 12 Minutes at NXT UP Fest 2022, and I also won the Award for Best Director in the short film category.. When I'm not making movies, I work as a personal trainer and boxing coach, helping motivate people to work hard and achieve their goals.
