I started to fish competitively during a turbulent moment of my life. In 2014, sport fishing helped me to work through this challenging period. Beyond overcoming these challenges, I learned to respect nature even more. Through sport fishing, the direct contact with mother nature helped me through this challenging phase of my life and I learned a new respect for the harmony and wonder of nature.

Now, every Saturday is day to recharge my energy and spirit. Mother nature, fish, my Hobie kayak, fish and I are in balance, which helps me to gain a healthy perspective.

I thank God for my wife and son, whom are at my side ando support me at all times, including sports fishing!

Every year since 2014, I have competed in fishing tournaments in Brazil. Beyond the relationships with the other fisherman, these events help me to grow, acquiring knowledge and wisdom through mistakes and successes.

My greatest achievements in championships were:

4th place in the Plug Only Championship in the City of Paranagu├í, PR – Brazil.

4th place in the Robalos Marina Carolinas tournament in Guaratuba, PR – Brazil.

2nd place in the Kayak Cup Stage in Guaratuba, PR, Brazil.

Also in 2018 we were vice champions with the team fish4ever in the Kayak Cup, I could not stop talking about this team that is part of my life!

Participating in HFW8 is the dream of any kayak competitor and for me it will be a dream come true!

Knowing competitors from around the world will add more experience and knowledge.

I never thought it was possible to compete with the best in the world and having the possibility of bringing the trophy to Brazil would be the summit of fishing for me.
