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.

6 Mailboxes

I have never walked the 500 mile Camino de Santiago in Spain like so many writers seeking to find themselves do.

Nor, have I ever walked the 1,560 mile Pacific Coast Trail like Cheryl Stayed did when she wrote “Wild.”

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.
