Governor Oscar S. Moreno was born in Balingasag, Misamis Oriental on February 28, 1951 to Dr. Emeterio A. Moreno and Milagros Roa Seriña.

After graduating salutatorian at the Balingasag Central School, he spent his high school years at the Xavier University (formerly Ateneo de Cagayan). After obtaining his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Manila, he enrolled at San Beda College where he earned his Bachelor or Laws degree with a Silver Medal For Academic Excellence in 1975. In the same year, he took and passed the Bar Examinations.

A year after passing the Bar, Gov. Moreno joined the government service as trial attorney of the Philippine National Railways. In 1977, he moved to the private sector and worked as a legal officer in a number of local and international banks and investment firms, including Far East Bank and Trust Company, Ayala Investment and Development Corp., Ayala International Finance, Bank of the Philippine Islands, Citibank N.A. and Ayala Corporation, among others.

In 1998, he joined the political arena and emerged victorious in the congressional race in the 1st District of Misamis Oriental. Despite being a neophyte in the House of Representatives, he bagged the assistant minority floor leadership and the chairmanship of the powerful Committee on Ways and Means. He also gained national stature as one of the prosecutors in the impeachment trial of former Pres. Joseph Estrada. In the 2004 electoral race, he was again given the mandate to represent his district in Congress, and this time, he was given the chairmanship of the Committee on Economic Affairs.

After representing his constituents in the 1st district in Congress for the last six years, then Rep. Moreno sought the gubernatorial post in the elections of 2004 and emerged victorious. During the May 14, 2007 polls the constituents of Misamis Oriental reaffirmed their trust and confidence in him as their provincial chief executive, thus, giving him his second term as governor.

In the League of Provinces of the Philippines, he takes on the responsibilities of auditor.

Gov. Moreno is married to Arlene Parado Pasion, who hails from Laoag City and Dingras, Ilocos Norte. Their union has bore them three children, Sean Oliver, Imee Rose and Oscar.
