Bernard Nelson's Photo 1 of 1

Hi, my name is Bernard.  What’s yours?

Unfortunately, I’m reaching out to you from a tiny cell inside San Quentin State prison.  I’ve been incarcerated since 1997 for a crime I did not commit.  In 2000 I was sentenced to Death and I’ve been on Death Row since.  I haven’t been idle with my time, with the belief of better days to come.  I’ve maintained a positive state of mind.  I stay busy and enjoy helping others get through rough times.

Laughter is important to me, so I make it a priority to spread my smiles.  Many people call me “The Spark” due to my upbeat personality.  Not every day is easy for me, but I still try to put my best foot first.

I am not a judgmental person and I don’t see the world in black and white.  I believe we are all unique, and though we may have individual traits, we still are part of one vast creation; a fabric that binds us into one, just as a wave is still part of the ocean.

I’m a student of life and enjoy meeting new people and learning new things.  My passions are reading, writing letters, poems and drawing.  I also like working out.  I’m 6’2” tall, weigh 210 pounds, and 47 years young.

I’m looking to meet someone who is sincere, loyal, and kind.  Someone who is willing to open up their heart and trust me (despite me being here!), and willing to build a long-term friendship.

I promise to honor, respect and appreciate you.  I’m a man of my word!  If you’re looking for that same connection with someone then we’re on the same plane.

Let’s begin a journey together.  I look forward to hearing from you.  Take care!
