Mario is an award-winning writer with an eclectic body of work across both drama and comedy. A Londoner, of Greek-Cypriot descent, he comes from a long line of creatives and is a true multiplatform storyteller.

He went on to gain commissions for THE MASTER FORGER (Sky) and COWARD (BBC), before releasing THE CYPRUS MISSING on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Sounds.
His short film ANONYMOUS picked up numerous awards on the international film festival circuit, including a nomination for the short film award at the Oscar-qualifying, Austin Film Festival.
Mario is currently working on several projects in development, including a feature film, two pilot commissions, a podcast series and various collaborations with leading production companies, and is also part of the prestigious BFI Network x Bafta Crew cohort for 2021.
