Marino was born in Colombia and moved to Hamburg, Germany, where he spent six years, and then, he moved to Los Angeles, CA. He engaged himself in the entertainment industry as an actor and musical composer.

Marino lived in this world of entertainment for  20 years, and he spent all those years away from the Lord. He became a pagan, and his life took a sharp turn towards that of a worldly human being, focused on shallow materialistic matters such as money, fame, and pleasure. He  involved himself in Eastern pagan religions and all kinds of esoteric sciences, such as astrology, crystals, candles, aromatherapy, flora therapy, card reading, I-ching, runes, psychics and every variety of superstitions.

Marino's life took a drastic turn during his visit to his hometown in Colombia at midnight on Christmas Eve in 1997. He was kidnapped and taken to the jungle as a hostage for six months. During the first 15 days of his kidnapping, he was kept in a cave with bats and different kinds of bugs while the captors were waiting for the rebels to pick him up. In that very cave, and after finding out that he was sentenced to death by his captors, he went through a mystical experience with God that changed his life forever. Five and a half months later, Marino was miraculously released from captivity after a miracle of God, and went back to his Catholic faith. Eighteen months later he became a full time missionary for the Catholic Church leaving behind all of his past, and all his worldly possessions.

Marino has written five books and has developed nearly 700 subjects that have been documented on DVD, CD and MP3. From each of these topics we are developing workshops to teach in parishes, convents, schools, universities and every possible evangelising avenue as the media, arts, animation and radio.
