My Journey

My personal journey into self-healing started when I was fifteen years old. Before that I was a street kid who numbed himself with drugs. I had a lot of pain that I was hiding from. I was lost with an absent drunk father and imprisoned heroin-addicted mother. After getting into some trouble on the streets I was sent to a boys home and there began my healing.

This book was developed through working with troubled youth over the years and as the result of my mothers death from addiction. I have been inspired not only by my experiences growing up with my eccentric gang family but also the lives and stories of the kids I’ve meet. I’m honored to be a walking example to delinquent teenagers that still have a chance at making a difference in their lives just like I did.
