I was born on June 3, 1995, in Garopaba – a municipality inside the state of Santa Catarina – Southern region of Brazil. Although I grew up in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul. In 2004 my father, a well-known actor, started bringing me to his jiu-jitsu practice on a regular basis. It didn’t take long for my dad to invite me to participate in the activities, a challenge enthusiastically accepted by my 8-year-old self at the time.

Jiu-jítsu is my lifestyle, I work very hard to be the best I can on and  off the mats . It’s Jiu-Jitsu that helps me fix my mind and go against daily problems. It’s the place where we relax under pressure or at least we learn how to.

My biggest accomplishment is winning the  IBJJF World Gi & No-Gi Championship, the IBJJF Pan American Championship, the UAEJJF World Abu Dhabi Pro, as well as the ADCC Brazilian Trials in São Paulo. The AJP Grand Slam Moscow.

A fun fact about me is I can always add humor to a bad situation.
