My personal experience of living the street life and the price I paid. And how against all odds I would survive to discover and produce the better man from within. This is not just a story being told, but the revelations of a mans journey from darkness to light, and how he became the man he would eventually become.
Against All Odds is an uncannily true story of being tried, convicted and sentenced to prison at age 15, as an adult, and the man that prison experience would eventually produce. This story has very long legs, covers many unexplored dimensions, and provides a rare bird's-eye view of growing up behind prison walls, living the street life to survive, and being caught up in the revolving doors of recidivism for over 40 years.
