I'm James. I'm 5'8", 165lbs, with blue eyes and brown hair. I'm currently serving a life sentence. However, I'm in court and close to winning my freedom. I've had a rough journey. Just like steel, I will come through the fire, stronger and better. My incarceration doesn't define or change who I am.

I'm kind, compassionate, laid back, and chivalrous. I enjoy helping people. I love to laugh and have a great sense of humor. I'm reserved with a wild side. I've been told I have nice eyes. I'm spontaneous and adventurous. I'd like to travel I've been to Canada, and Ireland twice. I'm considering relocating outside of the USA, I don't trust the government.

I love hot/spicy food. I like to cook and would enjoy taking culinary classes. I love nature, the outdoors, hiking, biking, and camping. I'm a city guy with country dreams. I'm interested in healthy, sustainable living. I'd like to find a nice big piece of land for an organic farm. I'm into UFC, weightlifting, and jogging. I enjoy writing and meeting new people.

I love animals, I consider myself a dog person, but I have owned a cat. I'd like to have a pet squirrel. I currently live in a "High Security Gated Community" that doesn't allow pets.

I try to make the best of some very unfortunate circumstances. I'm honest, open-minded, and nonjudgmental. All I ask is for the same, and a chance. Please write.

I look forward to hearing from you.
