After taking a leave of absence from UC Berkeley’s Master of Architecture program in 2013, Mario served as a product designer at Blackboard Mobile before moving into the financial technology space. Prior to Wealthfront, Mario served on one of JPMorgan Chase’s R&D teams focused on consumer finance technologies. He’s a big fan of the intersection of design and code- enabling designers to better communicate their work and getting closer to creating the final digital product. In addition to researching and creating better tools for designers, he’s also part of the design leadership team at CodePath, an organization that offers (free!) iOS and Android development courses for designers!
