Portrait of Mario Escobar

I'm Mario Escobar, from Honduras (yes, I know is a dangerous place... And no, I'm not related to uncle Pablo Escobar X).
I'm older than I look and feel even older than I'm really am, in Spanish that's called a VIEJOVEN.
Relatively new to the diving world, i did my first dive ever, less than 3 years ago and decide to pursue a career in diving; someone has to make the sacrifice of traveling around the world while meeting amazing people and having intense experiences, right... Before diving i was working on the media world (advertising, graphic design, animation, video production, etc) for several years and now I'm putting everything inside the blender doing some dive related video productions and taking the best possible pictures of the costumers that i guide diving and snorkeling at Silfra to make their social networks shine B). I learned to dive in Utila a small, warm, fun and crazy Island at the north of my country and after getting "bored" of diving among Coral, partying between bikinis and the sun shining on a daily basis, I decide to move, first to the beautiful Arabic ocean of Oman and now to the cold, challenging but marvelous waters of Iceland enjoying every second and looking forward to meet you, specially if you decide to read me all the way.
