I am a newly licensed member of Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty. I have devoted my life to succeeding as a professional athlete, and I approach everything I do with the intensity and drive of a world stage competition. I chose to relocate my family to Telluride when we discovered the excellent school system, an amazing family oriented community that is rivaled by none with its exceptional quality of life, and the most breathtaking scenery in North America. Contact me at 719-200-2480 and together we will discover your Telluride dream home.
I attended the University of Michigan on a wrestling scholarship. There, I was an NCAA All-American, University National Champion and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the School of Kinesiology. Upon graduation, I was invited to become a resident at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs where I earned a spot on the US Olympic Greco Roman Wrestling Team. Competing for the New York Athletic Club, I became one of only five American men in history to win a Greco Roman World Championship. Fun fact, more men have walked on the moon than have won a US Greco Roman World Championship. During my time at the OTC, I was four-time National Champion, two time Pan-American Champion, World Cup Champion, and the Sullivan Award /Most Outstanding American Amateur Athlete, Runner Up.
After my wrestling career, my wife Christy and I started a family. We have two great kids Xandr, 9, and Maddox, 7. I switched to Mixed Martial Arts fighting for DREAM in the Featherweight World Grand Prix in Tokyo, Japan. Immediately after, I signed with Bellator MMA. I’ve won three Bellator MMA World Titles, and I am the only athlete to hold two Bellator weight division World Titles, Featherweight and Bantamweight. I have the distinction of being the only athlete to win a World Title in both Wrestling and MMA.
Everything I’ve learned from four decades of international competition and the lifelong relationships I’ve built along the way have brought me to this incredible place in my life where I will use that tenacity and focus to work for you.
