He also serves as a member of the Advisory Board of the American University International Business Department at the Kogod School of Business. Mauricio’s love of tango started at a very early age in his native Bolivia: his grandmother and parents would listen to songs by Carlos Gardel, Astor Piazzolla, Francisco Canaro, Juan D’Arienzo, and other tango greats. He started dancing tango in 2010 and finds it a never-ending learning experience. Mauricio joined the Board in 2018.
