Nic Roldan is an eight-goal, third-generation polo player and consistently tops the American standings.

Nic travels the world for about half the year to play matches from Dubai and Santa Barbara to Australia and South Africa. His career includes everything from a modeling contract with Piaget to hosting post-match soirees in Aspen. The life of a professional polo player is unique; the dangerous action of the game is contrasted by a glamorous lifestyle of modeling and celebrity.

He recently completed his new home in Wellington, Florida, and he invited EQ to come for a visit. Nic is a natural design talent and he worked together with his mother, Dagmar Roldan, an interior designer on the new property. Dagmar told EQ, “Nic has great taste and ideas, and it is a lot of fun for me to work with my son on his projects.”

“Working with my mom is always a blast,” Nic added,“because we are always thinking of ideas outside the box. Our style integrates contemporary with modern and antique mixtures.”
