Hello, and thank you for choosing to view my page. I come from humble beginnings, living in a small village in upstate New York. I was raised in a very strict baptist upbringing with an strong emphasis in community, virtue and respect for one's fellow man. I have always had a strong interest in respect and honor. Back when I was a youth, if I was disrespected, I flew into a rage and would beat up all whom disrespected me. While this garnered me much street respect, it did little to grant me any credibility with regards to academic achievements. After one particularly destructive school yard brawl I was transferred to Westchester, New York to attend school there, where they could more easily deal with my fits of rage.
After I graduated in 1989, I left to join the Untied States Navy. On the entrance exam (called the 'ASVAB') I scored in the lower 90's. They wanted me to go into Nuclear Tech, but I instead opted for Operations Specialist, my love of computers had already gotten a firm hold on me. For what it is worth, I learned a lot of things about how the world really works while serving in Operation Desert Storm, however I found that a Navy career was not what I had in mind. I was Discharged in 1991 with a 'general discharge'.
Instead of coming back to New York right away, I stayed in the state that I was stationed in while I was in service, California. I wound up being in the movie 'Where the day takes you' starring Will Smith, while I was making a living patrolling with the then-famous 'Guardian Angels'. I stayed out in Cali for about six months. What I didn't know at the time was that now infamous 'Rodney King' incident, took place within mere hours after I had boarded that greyhound bus to come back to New York.
I often think about how close I came to dying in Hollywood.
After long years trusting in the circle of so-friends that I had, I had been hit with the hard and painful fact that not only did I not have friends but I was basically being used for various reasons and never to my benefit. I have taken a long hard look at my own life, examining the many things that went wrong and the very few things that actually went right. I know now that I will never be accepted by my peers, my community, my race or my social structure. People look at me and either ignore me altogether or want to destroy me outright. This place is one of the few places online that I have found that lets me be me, not just in the sense of expressing one's self in thought and deed, but also in appearance ( or lack thereof for now ). I will be looking forward to my metamorphosis through this website. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this as I look forward towards regaining my sense of self-worth.
