Mauricio was born in Argentina and raised both there and in Chile. He holds both a BA and an MA in economics. Over the last 27 years he has been growing his skills as finish carpenter, cabinetmaker and furniture maker. Since 2007, Mauricio has been a Greenline collaborator. His expertise can be seen and felt on West Wind’s Pool Pavilion, restoration of the Watzek House, and the Belluschi residence. Most recently, Mauricio brought both cabinetmaking and finish woodworking skills to the recent Greenline Firehouse 17 project where his hand created period details with both precision and beauty.
Patrick O’Neill and Mauricio credit each other with their increasing skill in carpentry and woodworking over the years. “Having a rich history with Patrick has led to an unspoken understanding between us as far as what needs to be done, how to approach it and the involvement, spirit and outcome that is expected of Greenline projects, and this has led to success in the field.” says Rioseco.
When Mauricio first moved to Portland 22 years ago, he began working on turn of the 20th century homes. He lives in one of them, a 1906 home with his wife and family. Mauricio has his own business Rioseco Woodworking and commands a personalized woodworking shop where he builds period cabinetry.
