Welcome to Inside Man. This is a work of fiction and should be treated as such. Not all details will be accurate (because understanding the legal system is a bitch), but hopefully they'll be believable. Please exercise caution if you choose to seek out a prison pen-pal.

If you want to read this on the blog, I'm posting it a little bit differently. Their letters look like actual letters. I think it's cool, but it's probably super irritating to read a handwriting font. Feel free to check it out: bit. ly/kEKtUg

I am creating this profile in hopes of finding someone who will write to me. I'm up for parole later this year, and my counselor suggested this program as a way to lift my spirits and practice communicating with people on the outside.

I have a Bachelor's degree in music and have spent a lot of time composing over the past 11 years. Creating music is what I've missed the most while here.

I've made a lot of stupid choices in my life that I can't take back, but I'm trying to be a good man now. I'm usually a happy person, but sometimes the loneliness of incarceration is overwhelming. I need a friend.

Thank you for reading my profile. I look forward to hearing from someone soon.
