HOWDY!!! – a Texas Cowboy “HELLO!!!”

I’m hoping to meet a sincere pen-friend to share our daily life, thoughts, opinions, life experiences, goals, and companionship. I believe letters allow our personality and inner beauty to shine. And, it all begins with- “HELLO…”

I’m a man of honor, integrity, and respect. I’m honest, caring, ambitious, passionate, intellectual, understanding, open-minded, a fun-romantic with a great sense of humor.

Interests/Hobbies [before/during incarceration]-

• Leisure activities: traveling, dancing, cooking, shopping, crossword puzzles, trivia on all genres of movies / tv / music / books / history, restoring Classic Corvettes / motorcycles, writing / receiving LONG penpal letters.
• Outdoor activities: ranching, rodeo, raising animals, beaches, nature hikes, camping, BBQ cookouts, kayaking, fishing, flying planes, motocross, mountain biking, skydiving, scuba diving.

Being a former college athlete (football, baseball, track) and an officer in Army Special Forces – martial arts, yoga, swimming, running, weightlifting, cross fitness – are a way-of-life to maintaining a strong, stress-free, healthy, youthful mind and body.

I grew up on the family ranch near Houston. Spent my teens racing motocross and bull riding for “adrenaline highs.” After receiving my Master’s Degree (Sports Medicine) from Texas A&M University and University of North Carolina, I spent my career in the Army because Green Beret trainings and combat deployments gave me new adventures and thrills.

I’m incarcerated for causing an accident that resulted in someone dear to me dying in my arms. I’m now eligible for parole. I’m looking forward to release and my new career as an outdoor photojournalist and novelist – creative writing is my passion.

I’m a good listener if you need to vent anything weighing on your mind. I can offer advice, opinions, strength, confidence, self-esteem, and a smile when you see my letters in your mailbox.

Write soon. SMILE!!!
