My name is Chris and I’m doing 70 months on armed robbery charges and am just under 36 months until I will be back home. I keep busy in here by working out 6x a week, staying in touch with friends and family, studying so that I can hopefully take some college courses soon after my release and then eventually get my own BBQ spot up and running.

I’m hoping to just meet some cool people...


Enjoy a good joke? Me too. I’d sure like to read your favorite jokes. I love to laugh, but – trust me – I know life’s not always a comedy.

In many ways, I’m a blast from the past – stuck in the 1986 (the year I came to prison). I like classic rock, some country (songs that don’t promote drinking [my downfall] and carrying on), Christian music (Newsboys, MercyME), and want to experience...

I am looking forward to meeting new people who are willing to take the time to get to know me.  Even though my situation is not ideal, I do not let it define me. 

So a little about me. I am easy to talk to, willing to share my experience, and very thoughtful when engaged in conversation.  I like to keep it light, I'm down to earth, and I'm probably one of the funniest...
