Gabriel was born and raised in Brazil “where this game runs in our veins, we breathe and live soccer with all our passion.” He has many great memories but his favorites were winning the amateur state championship in Brazil, playing in University tournaments with his colleagues and the first time he went with his uncle as a child to watch the their team play in their home stadium.
Gabriel is inspired to coach because throughout his life he wanted to play or be involved with soccer. Now that his time as a player has passed, his job as a coach is what moves him and gives him purpose. Also, he is motivated to help young players develop their game and learn to love the sport.
Gabriel has been working with soccer academies and clubs in the U.S. for 5 years, the last 2 with Stanford Soccer Club. He has completed his US Soccer Grassroots 7v7 License.
