Early Life

Dreyfus was born on December 23, 1979 in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. He studied acting at CEFAC, TV Azteca’s acting school, and at CEA of Televisa, and also studied physical engineering at the Universidad Iberoamericana. While studying, at the age of 24 he started a business in online marketing. Within two years, he became one of the largest distributors in the world in the food industry, so in 2012 he decided to go independent.

Between 2006 and 2007, he worked as an actor in telenovelas, playing the role of Óscar Zubieta in Televisa’s production “Código Postal”. He also acted in the feature film “The Bet” (2007), a documentary by Alessia Pertoldi about the details that directors go through to achieve their dreams. After this, he left the artistic world to focus on academia and business.


Speaker and Life Coach

In 2005, Dreyfus began giving lectures and workshops on lifestyle, money, dreams, businesses, and other topics to help people. From this initiative, “Te vas a Morir” (You’re Going to Die) later emerged, a movement, podcast, and viral social media program focused on helping people live the best life experience by designing the life they really want while finding what they came into the world for. “Te vas a Morir” consists of a series of lectures, workshops, physical and digital events, the blog “La Escuela de la Vida” (The School of Life), and a podcast with the same name, where he covers topics related to life, work, money, businesses, and dreams.

“I will only be a guide, you make the changes.” – Diego Dreyfus


The Chicharito’s Coach

A year later, his fame was boosted thanks to his relationship with Javier “El Chicharito” Hernández, who widely spread his program. During 2017 and until 2020, the soccer player went through a period of major changes, not necessarily good for his career from the perspective of fans. Many blamed Dreyfus for the change in attitude and poor performance of the soccer player, since their friendship became public.

Although these ups and downs did not immediately affect his career or fame, Dreyfus has since been the center of numerous controversies, often due to his unfiltered attitude and words. In 2022, he was criticized for being called classist, elitist, and for having an exclusive discourse, due to the justification he gave for his “privilege” and the comments he made about the Mexican scrape.

Currently, Dreyfus has 1.5 million followers on Instagram, 80,000 followers on Twitter, and 1 million subscribers on YouTube. His podcast has also been #17 on the Spotify Podcast Top in Mexico.

Recently, “Te vas a morir” (You’re Going to Die) has exceeded 170 episodes. Celebrities such as Angélica Vale, Angela Aguilar, Sebastián Rulli, Geraldine Bazán, Monserrat Oliver, Aislinn Derbez, Erik Rubín, Barbara de Regil, Pepe Aguilar, and Danna Paola, among others, follow him on social media.
