I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro and stepped on a skateboard for the first time in 1974, when I was 14 years old. By 1977 I knew that Freestyle was going to become my big passion. I have been very fortunate to have lived abroad both in Italy for 2 years and in Miami and New York City as well. When filling out this entry form I came to the line where you are asked to list any Guests that you will be bringing to the World Round-Up, I wrote down “My Skateboard” as I have always taken it with me when I’m traveling. I’ve been competing since 1977 traveling to contests when I can raise the money, as this is something I love to do. I have also organized 6 contests in Rio de Janeiro including the Big Rio Freestyle Contest that took place in 2015, 2016 and 2017, it was a huge success and was by far the largest contest that I have organized.
I graduated from University and am currently working as a lawyer handling criminal cases, at the Court of Justice of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This will be my fifth time at the World Round-Up in Cloverdale, I can hardly wait to see all my freestyle friends and skate with them.
