In October of 1994 I was sentenced to 29 years to LIFE for the possession of a handgun. I had made reckless choices that I now regret. I have been diagnosed as suffering from a bipolar disorder but instead of treatment I received incarceration. For the past 11 years I have reflected on my life and realized that I lacked discipline and had never performed selfless acts to benefit humanity. This is something, given the chance, I am going to change. I have aspirations to get into the music industry through songwriting and recording and I hope to reach out to troubled youth through my music to help them find and follow a productive path in their lives.
