Dario Ortega was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. At a young age, he fell in love with the magic of cinema and later, the process of creating. He studied film while pursuing a BFA at Savannah College of Art and Design. He focused specifically on directing and cinematography. He is currently pursuing his MFA in Film at the University Of Colorado Boulder. He is supported by a rock-solid group of friends and family who stand by him through all of his crazy creative endeavors.
