I am an innocent man, languishing on death row–inside of California’s Golden Gulag.

With my voice I speak truth to corrupt power. With my pen I write poetry, essays and I’m working on my biography. Given a brush, I will paint. I enjoy reading and exercise. I love to learn– I am a life-long learner.

I earned my Associates degrees in American Studies, Arts & Humanities, Business, and Behavioral Science coupled with my Paralegal Degree.

I wear many hats, but refuse to label myself as anything other than an innocent man, wrongfully convicted. This is my fervent struggle for long, overdue freedom…. Will you join me?

In Solidarity,
