Writer, Guatemalan Export, and Footie Aficionado
Jose Mario was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala and moved with his family to Houston at the age of 16. He finished his college degree in Chicago and worked in sales for iHeartMedia and ESPN Deportes Radio. Two years ago he moved to San Antonio and through Pitch Black News he hopes to raise awareness of fútbol and the San Antonio FC across the city and beyond.
A serial podcast listener and avid reader of fútbol books, he grew up supporting Comunicaciones aka Los Cremas in his native Guatemala and FC Barcelona after watching Romario terrorize defenders back in the 90’s.
When not contributing to Pitch Black News and attending SAFC games, he can be found playing FIFA online, winning titles in Football Manager or playing footie with the Crocketteers Gold men’s soccer team.
