Biography: Well, I am going to tell you a little bit how I started my career.
I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the first sport I was keen on was soccer. Then one of my uncles who were a racing driver pushed me into go-karts. Moreover, my dad almost gave me one as a present. After the accident of the best Formula One driver Ayrton Senna, I was really sad about what had happened and I gave up karting. Later some of my friends started surfing. I had an advantage that I lived right in front of the beach in Rio, so I started doing it too. I was really in a pretty good road until my mother and stepfather had to move to Isla Margarita, Venezuela. That was a big change in my life. I’ve been living here on the island since 1998. The main sport here is windsurfing and everything is connected with it. I made my friends who wanted to do it and we started doing it together. Everyday I loved it more and more. Then I got my first sponsor and I went to a few small contests around the Caribbean winning some of them.
