After 16 years in prison, the Parole Board just told me I'm being set free! I'm paroling to the Los Angeles area in March of 2020. I'm applying to UCLA Film School and I'm interested in making friends with positive people who like to build each other up. I am a 6-foot-tall, athletic, occasionally silly guy looking for kindhearted female friends who are open-minded and really love to laugh. There’s nothing quite like writing letters to get to know someone, their unique talents, and delightful quirks.
Obviously everyone “out there” is not locked up, but not all of them are free either. Sometimes not having anyone who understands you can feel like its own type of cage. But knowing someone thinks about you throughout the day makes the world seem smaller, more connected, sweeter.
Being here all these years has taught me some surprising truths, like that the friends we make in unlikely places are often the ones that really last. That beautiful thoughts cannot be imprisoned, and that God can use a lock to set you free.
I love movies, good books, the ocean, trying new foods and new things. And I love writing letters. I’m fairly fluent in Spanish, too, so si eres Latina, puedo user la practica. Feel free to write from another country.
As I prepare to get out in the spring, maybe we can keep each other company? I’m an excellent listener and I'd love to hear more about you.
