Personal vision:
“Bring in some latino vibes in the pool”


My passion for swimming started from a young age. I was signed up for swimming lessons when I was only 10 months old, getting acquainted with the water very early on. Since then, I have progressively improved my swimming skills through time, culminating in my high school years. As a senior in high school, I participated in the school team and carried us to national competitions among international schools in Germany. It was here that my skills shun the most.

Coaching Style

Now in university, I hope to make the most out of what I have learnt by transmitting it to others. My favorite feeling is seeing my students surpass their boundaries and learn skills they didn’t know before. As a coach, I consider it crucial that each student knows exactly which skills they will learn in each class, what steps we will take to get there, and how it will all add to their swimming journey. I make sure to maintain a balance between allowing yourself to learn and take things easy, and pushing the boundaries of what you can do. Each class is a chance to take your swimming level a step forward, mixing different techniques to allow each student to find what suits them best to grow.
