I am a former professional jockey who wrapped up the racing part of his story in December 2019. Over the course of my career, I set records around the world and racked up over 2,900 career wins—including back-to-back wins of the Queen’s Plate (2009 and 2010)—lifetime earnings of over $100M, and becoming a seven-time winner of the Sovereign Awards as Canada’s Outstanding Jockey.
My story began in Brazil, brought into a life of poverty and struggling with a debilitating illness. But despite that beginning, I crafted a plan to beat the odds I was dealt with and have spent my life travelling the world, becoming one of the best in my field and mentoring others to do the same.
I am an accredited performance coach and NLP practitioner—and have built a practice helping athletes and executives reach their peak mental performance. Assisting others in achieving excellence in their personal and professional lives is at the core of what I do.
When not working as a coach, I immerse myself in two essential aspects of my life:
As a public speaker, I work to connect with people by sharing my journey. My aim is to provide inspiration and helpful lessons that I used to achieve my success in my professional and personal life and to inspire the hope that regardless of where your life begins, it’s what you do with it that matters.
