Gabriel Camargo


Brightwater Adjunct Chef Instructor for Advanced Breads Gabriel Camargo grew up in Brazil, but his family is originally from Cosenza, Italy and ​Beira Litoral, Portugal. It was in his Italian-side grandmother's kitchen that Gabriel developed his first ideals of bread aromas, understanding the crucial role artisan breads play on gathering people around the table for a long and lively family lunch.

Gabriel holds certificates of completion in Artisan Baking and viennoiserie from the San Francisco Baking Institute. Previous education includes a BA in Orchestral Conducting and Composition from Faculdade de Artes Alcantara Machado, an MBA in Economics from Fundação Getúlio Vargas in Brazil and a certificate in Artificial Intelligence Strategy from MIT Sloan School of Business. Gabriel is also the Managing Director at Frontinus Consulting, working​ in a wide range of financial technology projects and startups around the globe.

Gabriel spends a lot of time on the road guest baking at renowned artisan bakeries in the US, France, Portugal and Brazil. He brings to Brightwater a scientific approach to bread baking in line with a real production environment. He joined Brightwater to share with students his passion about breads and contribute to a high performing bread baking culture in Northwest Arkansas.

During his free time, Gabriel enjoys camping, learning new things and, of course, bread baking.
