Octavio Pizano is an actor of Italian-Spanish descent. He grew up in Tijuana, Mexico, until the age of 17. Due to increased violence in Mexico, his parents sent him to Vancouver, Canada, to finish his studies and learn English. It was there that Octavio attended his first acting school and fell in love with the craft. He originally enrolled at the University of San Francisco to pursue a career in business, but after performing at an impromptu spoken-word show, he regained his love for the arts. It was then that he decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. He has since worked on numerous commercials and other independent projects.
