Let’s get right to it and answer the looming questions. I’m in prison because I sold drugs, toted guns, and then wound up killing a man on a Brooklyn street in 2001, (And yes, I do feel remorse for my crime. I’ve written about that extensively in my published work – but we’ll get to that in a minute). Soon afterward, I was arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to 28 years to life. It all went down when I was 24 years old. I’m 38 now, and have been in for more than 14 years. My ugly truth is that I sought out a life of crime, and it didn’t have to be this way because I had plenty of opportunities and come from a decent family.

Prison was difficult for me in the beginning, but eventually I got my act together. In Attica, which is really New York’s worst prison, some of the best things have happened to me. First, I got sober. Then, in 2010, I landed a spot in a small creative writing workshop, voluntarily hosted by an English professor, where I managed to find my untapped talent: writing about social justice issues. In these past years I’ve managed to get published in several heavyweight publications like The New York Times, The Atlantic and several other (see my website:

I’m placing this ad because I’m hoping to make friends with people who have the same passions and interests as I do: Education, writing, journalism, politics. Perhaps we can learn from each other. A typical day for me consists of me in my cell, in my own world, banging away on an old word processor, with my headphones on (I listen to everything). Then I’ll hit the yard for an hour and work out. Here’s something corny about me: I watch The Bachelor and the Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad.

So if you are a smart, creative, and funny human being looking for a good ol’ fashion pen-pal – and not looking for the man of your dreams on a prison pen-pal web site! – then drop me a line.
