Esoterician, activist, percussionist, singer, writer, fractal artist, volunteer for the free people of earth in any way that works.
Mastermind sessionist, researcher and writer for Infictive.com.

Persecuted since a teenager by the elite through the means of the drug war. Former member of a forced underclass created and maintained by a criminal group of plutocrats who are themselves above prosecution, who refuses to be defined by the would-be life-long punitive shame that is attempted to be forced upon those who had run-ins with the law when they were young.

"Your Honor,years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth.
