So we’ll tell everyone we met at Starbucks

Email me on if you're searching for a BEST friend who is real, loving, funny and a lot of fun. Don’t worry-I’m not that guy you find when you swipe all the way to the end of the tinder:  I am somebody who likes making new friends:  Making them laugh and smile and bringing out the best in them by helping them find a side of themselves they never knew they had. That’s the true measure of friendship-it isn’t how you feel about that someone, it’s how that person makes you feel about yourself.

Making new friends keeps life interesting, exciting and keeps you young. By adding more special capital you’ll have more opportunities, create new memories and try new things. These things are possible with someone locked up because physical things in life aren't as important as the emotional connections we make when it comes to change, since being locked up at 23, I’ve worked on becoming a better person now at 42, I’ve become a leader/mentor for programs, received my GED, mentor guys in here and became a great cook as I worked in the officer’s kitchen, cooking for directors, wardetts, as well as everyone else here.  I am currently working towards completing my degree in business and working on my appeal, trying to prove my innocence, restoring my freedom so I can get back out there to my 4 beautiful kids and having the justice that I was unfortunately denied. I am thoroughly convinced that I will one day very soon be exonerated from the charges that I have been wrongfully convicted of.

My passion is music and helping my kids out as much as I can by being there for them. I also like to draw, art, cooking, writing, movies, reading, playing the drums, tattoo’s, meeting new people and of course sports of any kind, pretty much anything physical.

Still, I want-more than anything-to meet a woman who notices me, who challenges me mentally and helps bring out the best version of me. With this woman you can be yourself and not have to worry about what others negatively think of you. Because they like you for who you are. Because the things that seem insignificant, such as a letter, a phone call, an email or a few minutes of being in one another's company, become these little tiny tidbits of treasure kept as keepsakes and cherished.

Right now, I have a void in my heart because I need that true friend, to get to know each other and see where it goes from there. Someone I know all their flaws, mistakes and weaknesses but I still find them absolutely amazing. I want to be the reason why you crack your next smile, will you let me?
I truly believe that one day someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked with anyone else.
