"I am very happy to have the opportunity to study sport management with SNHU – a top school in this field."
I am from Sao Paolo, Brazil and a U.S. resident in Scottsdale, Arizona. I am a former soccer player and have a degree in physical education and sport from the University of Sao Paolo. I have been working with youth and community college soccer and currently I am the Director of Coaching for a youth soccer club in Phoenix, AZ. I also have a United States Soccer Federation A License, a National Soccer Coaches Association of America Premier Diploma and a DOC diploma. Additionally, I am the author of the book “The Brazilian Box Midfield,” by World Class Coaching.
I am very happy to have the opportunity to study sport management with SNHU – a top school in this field—where I can deepen my understanding of the following areas of interest: long term athlete development, team culture and the organization and impact of mega-sport events like the Soccer World Cup 2014 and Summer Olympics 2016, both in Brazil. My humble advice to the SNHU community is that we do better at what we love. Keep in touch with intrinsic goals as a guide to academic and professional careers.
