Hello Friend!
Yes, I’m talking to you, so smile.  Am I an interesting guy?  Maybe.  Intelligent? Certainly.  Good-looking?  You tell me.  Spiritual?  Hallelujah, Yeah!  Actually, I’m a moderate down-to-earth guy with a genuine heart and sentiments of hope.

I lay bare the dreams of a 42 year old man misunderstood in search of a better life than the one I’ve been living these past 8 years incarcerated.  Listen, there’s no excuse for Robbery and I’ve done things in the name of survival, and prison is a constant reminder of one’s mistakes.  But a person’s destiny isn’t defined by what people see, it’s the unseen; the immeasurable.  So, regardless of these tattoos and battle wounds that scar my flesh and the circumstances of my situation, I strive to be a positive person to think as I grasp for the future.  And if there’s anything I’ve learned in these walls…is that “sometimes you have to let life turn you upside down so you can learn how to live right-side up.

As my second chance in life approaches, I’ve implored God to grace my path with someone special.  As fate would have it, we’ve already crossed paths if you’re reading this letter.  So hopefully I piqued your interest enough for you to acknowledge me with a response.  God bless and I’ll be waiting.
