Today, Al Mauro is continuing to amaze and inspire, leading the way to new and exciting projects, passions and assisting others to reach their highest potential.
I felt many times through my life that my hand was guided, my heart prompted to step out of the shadows of self and truly grasp my potential and possibly by doing so, be an example of hows can be also. I grew up a military kid with my Mother & Father in various localities such as Oahu, Hawaii, Guam, Washington State, San Diego, Ca and Denver Colorado, to name a few. My travels taught me a great deal about people, cultures, and philosophies, experiencing first hand the many different perspectives that shape individuals and our world.
During this time, my Father (Al Mauro Sr.) was also an actor, Screen Actors Guild coach, a live music performer, a boxer and expert martial artist. He was the one who introduced me to all kinds of arts culture and how to excel one's self within, making sure I was exposed to the fullness of what each offered, a priceless education.
Like my Father, my Mother (Scarlett) also played a strong hand in my moral compass and taught me about grace and taking my soul searching wherever I wished to go. Their unconditional love, support, and grounding truly set me on a path of self-discovery and pushing the limits of what one is capable.
As I got older, I began to branch out and share my creativity and passions more and more. It was a difficult road at times as for anyone who sees life and creativity different than the norm, however, I always pushed forward.
By the end of high school, I had a lot building up inside and wasted no time beginning to work with various producers, workshops and mentors in the film and music industry who took their craft seriously. I soon began producing for stage and album projects.
Finally, in the mid-2000s, I shifted gears and began recording my own music, making my own films and started a production company I call, Scarlett Monet.
Things really began to snowball after that as I have also become a film director, screenwriter, and consultant for individuals and artists alike. I tend to take a more organic, life balancing approach to how business and productivity is done.
I believe that no matter where we are in life, there is an opportunity to develop oneself into what one truly is beyond the veil of the image one thinks they are.
