Early in his career, Mauricio was the education coordinator and program director at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. He then spent ten years in France, where he taught art, film, and design and was a corporate communication trainer, before finally opening his own art gallery in Tours. Upon returning to the US in 2011, Mauricio served as executive director at the Revolving Museum in Lowell, MA and was also a founding co-director of Mill No. 5, an indoor streetscape mall of historic buildings salvaged from throughout New England and reconstructed inside a Victorian industrial mill complex in Lowell.
Since 2012 Mauricio has freelanced as a creative consultant, while shifting his focus to private and small group art instruction. He teaches printmaking as well as drawing, both digital and by hand, at all levels. He has taught drawing through MIT's Spouses and Partners office as well as through MIT Retirees. He has also provided MIT undergraduates instruction in drawing comics and creating effective visual presentations.
