Mario Villalobos


Hey, my name is Mario Villalobos. I am a writer, photographer, and IT director living in western Montana.

I earned a BFA in Writing for Screen & Television from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts. I currently work as an IT Director in a small K-12 school in western Montana, which is a far cry from my days writing movies at USC. If you’d like to learn more, you can listen to me talk about myself in episode 94 of the Micro Monday podcast.

Check out my reading log where I’ve tracked every book I’ve read since 2010, and check out my origin story, where I wrote a short essay a day, every day, for a full year.
