Bienvenidos – Ya’ateh

Welcome!!  This site represents the purest form of freedom of expression.  It is a site devoted to stretching the boundaries of the soul.  It is a site fueled by emotions, thoughts, desires, and spirituality.

Only through the written word can we truly live and experience life the way it was meant to be.  To live life fully with no restraints, boundaries, or fear.  It is part of the struggle that we engage in each day not only for our selves but for those we hold near and dear to our hearts.  Keep fighting for your dreams and Nunca Te Rindas!!!

Please check out my poems, short stories, motivational content and blogs in the menu bar above.  If your still hungry for more head on over to to see what projects I am working on now.

I conduct professional development workshops both nationally and internationally. In 2022, I facilitated leadership and communication workshops for the Trinidad and Tobego Prison Services, Arizona Correctional Educators, Inc, and the Pima Reentry Coalition.

With over 27 years of progressive leadership in both state and federal prison systems, I continue to focus on transforming high-potential individuals into outstanding leaders.
