I am originally from Salvador, Brazil and I came to the United States to play college soccer in 2010. I went to Iowa Western Community College for my first 2 years as a college player. During my sophomore year, I was chosen as a captain and was chosen as an All-American player. After my time at IWCC, I transferred to the University of Central Arkansas where I played for 2 more years and graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Health Education.

In 2015, I returned to IWCC to start my coaching career. After coaching for 1 year, I decided to continue my education so I went to Hasting College in Nebraska where I got my Master’s Degree in teaching while working as a graduate assistant coach. During my first year at Hastings, we won the national tournament at the NAIA level as an undefeated team. Upon graduation, I became a full time assistant men’s soccer coach at Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX where I have spent my last 4 years as a coach.

Throughout my time as coach and player in different institutions and divisions, I have realized how important recruiting can be for student-athletes and their families. The best thing about working at NCSA is that I will be able to help each and every individual to find their right fit on and off the field.

I currently reside in Austin, TX with my wife and son but will soon be moving to Chicago, IL.
