Happy New Breath.

I spent 21 years of my life in prison for crimes committed at the age of 16.

Since returning to the free world in 2007, I have dedicated my life to serving the youth and communities of the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

I hope to use my experiences to: inspire and motivate young people to invest in their education; raise awareness about the detrimental impact that the Prison Industrial Complex has on the Asian and Pacific Islander population; and, promote racial harmony among people of color.

Welcome and thank you for visiting.
