Gabriel was Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. As a child he used to go to camps in Brazil but they are quite different from those in the U.S. Gabe started swimming when he was 9 years old and later became an assistant coach at his club in Brazil, helping the kids improve their technique. In 2016 Gabe went to Wichita, Kansas for 1 year as an exchange student to complete his senior year of high school, and also improve his English skills. Gabe went back to Brazil for 6 months in 2017 and then got an offer to swim at Barton Community College in Great Bend, Kansas. He is a funny, outgoing guy who always wants to have the best environment possible around him. He is excited to spend the summer of 2018 at Camp Lenox and to see what the futures brings him.
