Mauricio Jaramillo is the outcome of an international upbringing. Born to Colombian parents in Managua, Nicaragua, he spent the first few years of his life in Peru, Guatemala and Bangladesh. He then spent his whole adolescence in Manila, Philippines, before heading off to university in the USA (Philadelphia and Miami), where he majored in International Relations. His father was a diplomat and for this reason, Mauricio has been to 34 countries around the world and is completely fluent in English and Spanish, as well as being proficient in spoken French.

It was this international upbringing that led Mauricio to discover his passion for other cultures, especially those in Asia and Latin America. As a kid, he began performing illusions for friends and family before discovering his true passion, Mentalism. After discovering his ability to convince people of seemingly supernatural feats, as well as hypnotizing, and reading the body language of those around him, he set off on a quest to read, invent and develop as much as he could about Mentalism.

He moved to Colombia in 2005, after his father, his main inspiration, passed away. With the intention of getting to know his parentís home country, he fell in love with his new adopted country and opted to stay. Since then, millions of people in several countries have witnessed Mauricioís performances during his frequent appearances on radio and TV. Companies as well as individuals hire him on a regular basis to both enjoy the unforgettable and unique experience he offers as well as being trained by him on expanding their minds.
