Igor was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and moved to Houston, Texas in 2008 when his father received an offer to open a Martial Arts school in the United States. Igor went on to learn English and thrive in his studies, eventually earning a Bachelor of Arts in Government and a Bachelor of Arts in History with honors from the University of Texas at Austin in 2019.

During his undergraduate studies,  Igor worked in both chambers of the Texas Legislature; first as a Legislative Intern for State Representative Pat Fallon during the 85th Legislative Session, and then as a Communications Assistant for Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick during the 86th. Furthermore, Igor was involved in numerous political campaigns throughout the state, and most importantly, spent a semester interning at the Texas Public Policy Foundation as a Legislative Affairs intern.

Igor has a passion for Immigration policy and Latin American affairs. He strives to advocate for preserving American sovereignty and the rule of law while maintaining our country’s rich tradition of welcoming immigrants who hope to achieve a better life in the United States and contribute to society.

Outside of work, Igor enjoys practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, paddle boarding, and playing with his dog, Reagan.
