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.

Never confuse simple and easy.
