Coto is currently pursuing his CMPC (Certified Mental Performance Consultant) accreditation through AASP and specializes in performance enhancement through mental skills training and development, both in English and Spanish. Coto’s dream is for performers to achieve excellence through their performance domains, which is his focus in working with people.

Coto was born and raised in San Jose, Costa Rica and came to the United States in 2014 to pursue his education and obtained his undergraduate degree in Psychology at the New York Institute of Technology. Coto completed his master’s degree in Sport & Performance Psychology at the University of Denver with a specialty in the LatinX population.
