Born in Brooklyn, New York and experiencing street life real early in my childhood, like around five and six years of age. Life in the streets caused a great imprint in my mind and an awesome impact on my way of thinking. This tremendous awareness in my youth gave new meaning to the word imprint. A few years later, at the age of nine our family, comprised of nine childrens plus my mom and dad, moved to this country town in Pennsylvania, called Lancaster. My Godfather called it the hilly country. My family consisted of six boys and three girls and to us this was a tramatic, overwhelming, and completly over the edge culture shock. It was devastating to say the least. Bewildered, fustrated, and confused, the only thing that kept my sanity was knowing that I was going back to New York, as soon as I finished school. That was my motivation, and that desire to return to Brooklyn, New York was my hope for many days to come.
