Searching for someone eye-catching is difficult, so thank you for your time. Friendships develop in many ways, as all people have their unique story and mine is no different. As an adopted child, I searched for an identity and belonging, but made misconceived choices and found misplaced friendships and inevitable heartache. Though my journey was rough, these events...

Hello World,

Everyone has a start, and friendship begins when we try to make a difference in each others’ lives, and it is strengthened when such a difference is made through laughter, story sharing and being happy that we have a good friend in each other.

With this in mind, my name is Pablo F. Maldonado (the “F” stands for fun, funny, free spirit). My life consists of...

Hola. Hi, my name is Carlos. I am looking for someone that can be a window in this dark 4x9 foot cell.

Introduce You for Friendships

A reflection of you defines you in a friendship. I seek meaning and understanding that defines friendship, where education of us teaches us about each other.

I enjoy studying people and business concepts to understand who they are in their life story.

Our reflections of self teach us how to live our life despite all the challenges that try...

Ever since I was a kid, I loved music and making people laugh! I enjoy all kinds of music, especially 80's music. Before I was incarcerated, I worked at a radio station in Los Angeles, California from 3pm-7pm, Monday through Friday, as the "5 o'clock traffic jam DJ".  I played Hip-Hop and R&B. At night Monday through Saturday, I DJ'd at different...

I have resided on death row since I was 19 years old. The past 17 years have been an emotional rollercoaster. Facing death when life was just starting, to being a week away from execution in 2017. The road has been rough, but I kept on truckin.

There have been films done on my case and sites dedicated to me. You can learn more about me at and www....

This last year has been one of the hardest.  For many years I've been told I will get a new trial, and “just be patient”…..but nothing happens.  Realizing the fact is, it takes an average 30 plus years for those on death row to win an appeal.  A lot of that time comes just waiting to be appointed a lawyer.  So even if I do win on appeal, I will be an old man,...
