I always knew that I would write, I just had no idea how personal my first book, "6 Minutes Wrestling with Life", would be to me.

I love to inspire, motivate and show a different approach to dealing with or solving life's problems through my writing.

As a former athlete and current coach, I believe that in sports there are valuable life lessons that can have a tremendous impact on a young athletes life.

I pull these life lessons out from my own experiences in sport.

Hopefully I have touched you through my writing and have stirred your emotions enough to live life more fully.

Wrestling Writing

At first, one wrestles to win championships.

Then, after many years, one realizes it wasn’t the pursuit of championships that wrestling was all about –wrestling is about preparing you for life. I owe a great deal to this sport, that is why I write about it so passionately.
This book is a compilation of all my writing on the sport.

Dominate

Inside of the mind of every wrestler lurks his demons.

They are the little voices of fear, doubt, and the lack of confidence.

Your mission in a match is to get these little voices inside your opponent’s head to start talking to him.

And to have your opponent believe what they are saying.

My Vote For President

We have more work to do. Hard work. Frightening work. Uncertain work, unending work. Work that may test us, work that may defeat us. Work for which we may not get the credit, but work on which the whole world depends. The time is short and the odds are long, but I believe that we are ready nonetheless.
