I have spent most of my life incarcerated. At the age of 15 I took the life of another human being causing great harm to a countless number of people. Throughout the years since I have committed myself to creating healing opportunities, focusing on my capacity for accountability, the obligation I have to undo the harm I have caused and the need for active community involvement.
I feel a great sense of gratitude – while holding space for humility – for the many opportunities that I have been gifted with while incarcerated. I have shifted from the hurt 15 year old kid who was living on the streets, doing drugs and running from all of my internal wounds, to the adult version of me, today, who feels very connected to the world – from the inside out.
As I continue to travel along my life’s path, more and more I connect with the value that I place on human connection and deep, meaningful relationships. And as I am reaching what could be the final leg in this chapter of my life, I am looking to develop a strong, healthy and successful standing in the outside community. The two go hand-in-hand for me: meaningful relationships and success.
If you are interested in meeting me – someone who is into music, physical fitness, facilitating self-help programs, advocacy, training service dogs and The Goonies – I’d feel more than happy to hear from you and to learn about your life.
