I am an artist and I have a dream of having my own business as an owner/cook with a mobile food service. I am looking at colleges to complete a degree by the time I leave prison. I love dogs and my mom, dad and sister. I have a strong relationship with my parents and sister who stand in great strength and support of me on this journey.

I am Native American and believe all life is sacred. I rescue dogs whenever I can and miss my dog so much. My mom and dad are caring for Marley. I hope to get better at writing but I am trying to learn so I can make friends.

I thank you for considering writing to me for I am in need of friends. I want to support friends who write to me though I am in prison. I grew up in the Air Force and enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I am grateful for programs like this one to have pen pals while I work to return to life outside of prison.
