Hailsa, my name is Michael. I would like to correspond with interesting people. People with a variety of views. Wouldn’t the world be a boring place if we all agreed on everything? I am doing multiple life sentences. While I am a convicted murderer, I do not believe that is what defines me as a person.

My captors keep me in Administrative Segregation (solitary confinement). While my...

Namaste. I thought long and deeply about posting a profile on this site being a sex offender, but the fact is I have to continue with life in spite of my circumstances. I can either wither and die of shame or accept my shame and move forward. I choose the latter. My motivations are this: I am a Buddhist, the only one here at this prison. I seek shelter in the Sangha out there. I have one hour...

Some of my favorite things are my dog, my dirt bike, my family, my friends, and my church. My dog is an Irish wolfhound so he is a big boy. I've had him since he was a pup. I do professional off-road dirt bike racing which challenges me physically and mentally. I've had a few good injuries from it, but I plan to keep riding.

The first thing I would like you to know is that I am not the person you will read about on the ODRC website. I have been in prison nearly 16 years and have spent a great deal of time working on myself. Many years in multiple programs that were intently focused on finding out why our crimes were committed have helped me to locate the man I was always meant to be.

As I wake up in the morning, I feel something is missing and that is the love or friendship of a woman. So I stop and think, it’s not another bad day in prison, it’s a good day to meet somebody new. As I wait, I’ll work on my body as well as my mind. Either way I know there’s somebody out there who will simply not judge me outright based on my past. I’m less than a...
