"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life"
I was born in Sao Paulo Brasil in 1983. I began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for several years when I was 18 years of age. I moved to Australia in 2006 when I was 22 and began training Jiu-Jitsu again with Professor Gustavo Pinto at Gracie Barra Newcastle City in 2013. I opened Gracie Barra School with Professor Gustavo Pinto in 2017.

I love teaching the art of Jiu-Jitsu, surfing and spending time with my family.
I was born in Rio de Janeiro Brasil in 1978. I started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 1992 when I was 13. I moved to Australia in 2003 and fell in love with the laid back surfing culture. I opened my first Gracie Barra School in 2009 in Newcastle City and started a family at the same time. I now have two children who both train Jiu-Jitsu with me and I hope they will continue to train the martial art to keep the legacy alive!
