Ever since I was a child, fitness has been a large part of my life. My father was an accredited and sought after coach in Brazil, where I grew up. My father encouraged me into sports at an early age, and it wasn’t long until I found myself involved in the great sport of boxing. Pursuing boxing for over 15 years lead me onto the Brazilian Olympic Team as a Cruiserweight. During that time in Brazil, I also began learning the sport of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, to which I achieved a brown belt in ranking.
At age 19, I moved from Brazil to California with the intentions of improving my boxing and fighting career. It was here in California where I met Royce Gracie and other illustrious coaches who I became both a student under and close friend outside the “arena”. To this day, I still remain close friends with Royce and others.
Following my pursuits as a competitor, I began coaching and bodyguarding. Coaching and helping others really ignited a fire inside me. I found a great passion in introducing the great sport of fighting to others. Over the years, my time as both a bodyguard and coach landed contracts with Team Pacquiao, Team Maidana, and TMT. Present day, I am a personal bodyguard for Royce Gracie and Gracie Family. Additionally, I provide coaching for celebrity and other high-profile clients at Metroflex LBC.
