USF alumnus writes and directs an independent film “The Throwback”
Raised in the vibrant city of Tampa, Fla., Mario Garcia has a great appreciation for all that the city has to offer. Naturally, that included attending the University of South Florida (USF), not only because of his local roots, but his intimate familiarity with the university.
His family has deep-rooted connections to the university. Both of his parents met at USF and three of his siblings pursued their education there as well. Adding to this legacy, his father, Dr. Mario Garcia Sr., was an editor for The Oracle while attending.
“My dad was the editor of The Oracle back in the day. In the sixties, during the Vietnam War. So, it was a heavy-duty time to be an editor,” Garcia said.
A fondness for writing seems to be common within Garcia’s family.
