LIFE OF A GENT
An original series exploring distinct gentleman in contemporary society.
There are those that find immense fulfillment in the pursuit of their passions and exude an excellence of character that we admire and endeavor to emulate. Incredibly versed in the art of being a modern gentleman, Mario Abaya exudes the chivalries only a man well-versed in the heterogeneity of the world can extend. A magnificent individual with an appreciation for opulence and the grandeur of traveling the world, Mario converses in an elegant fashion demonstrative of his cultivated characteristics. Having a deep understanding of the prodigious world that we live in, the knowledge he imbues in others leaves an everlasting understanding of the altruistic, enthralling individual that he embodies.
An erudite at pursuing his passions of world travel, Mario found his humble beginnings through his personal pursuit of refinement in the arts. His outer gentleman appearance conceals a covert artist whom works tirelessly at his craft. A purveyor of contemporary dance styles, Mario’s physical prowess astonishes everyone who witnesses, yet he is diffident and is not ostentatious to bloviate about his expertise. Through vigorous labor and exceptional patience one can muster the confidence to accomplish their wildest ambitions, and Mario is the personification of the possibilities of intrepid individuals.
With a man so enlightened on personal confidence and class, Mario attributes his beginnings from the experiential learning he received in his youth. Looking back, Mario remembers the days of lacking his own self-confidence and dwelling on insecurities; a stark disparity from the man we know today. Overcoming the negative personality traits of his youth eventually came about through the discovery of dance which amended his disposition to become the distinguished individual he is today. With such a prodigious influence on his life, Mario relates any life ambitions towards the efforts and tribulations he faced on his journey through becoming a virtuoso of his craft. “If your passionate about something, you need to go all in” Mario emphatically advises; reminiscing of the tenacity he learned from being indefatigable in reaching for his goals.
A maestro of gentleman class, Mario advises on the importance of your everyday persona. “Being a gentleman is about the way you carry yourself. It is not about age but is a sign of maturity level. It is an everyday commitment that you can not fake, and it needs to be natural in all that you do,” Mario states. Allegiance to the modern personification of a gentleman needs to be the leading principal in any man’s life. You can not elect to choose solitary situations to be chivalrous or enthralling. Instead, you need to exude those characteristics on a daily basis until it is engrained in your typical nature. Inauthenticity is a facile way to be ostracized by others, and the fraud of one’s personality is easy to detect if one does not actually emanate a true gentleman’s attributes.

Never settling for mediocrity, Mario is an inspiring character whom continues to galvanize and astonish others to the grandeur of pursuing one’s passions in life to their utmost capabilities.
