Episode Description

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, where as a child I was sexually abused by my parish priest. This abuse plunged me headfirst into drug addiction, incarceration, ruined-relationships, and homelessness. As a survivor of sexual abuse, I found my voice at 32 years old and I have gone on to be an outspoken advocate for the protection of children. I am actively involved with and support those that push for legal remedies to protect children. As a recovered addict and a survivor or sexual abuse, I’ve dedicated my life to helping those going through what I experienced and show them that abuse and addiction do not have to limit them from all of life’s joy and beauty.

I was born and raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts, where my parents divorced when I was nine years old. When my mother remarried, two step-brothers and a step-sister joined my older sister and two younger brothers. If you are thinking “Brady Bunch,” you kind of have the picture (but not G-rated like the TV version).

As a teenager I became a commercial fisherman, and that is where my life took a destructive turn. The waterfront was rampant with heroin and cocaine use and I endured many years of active addiction that finally rendered me homeless, helpless and loveless. I joined the Marine Corps in 1982 to try to get away from my surroundings but found myself back in the same boat after my time in the service ended.

My life changed for the better on February 28, 1989 when I fortunately became a MIRACLE IN RECOVERY. Since then, I have made it my quest to give back what was given to me, one day at a time without the obsessive restrictions of active addiction.

My life is second to none today and I encourage you to become a MIRACLE IN RECOVERY as well. Listen in as I share my experience, strength, and hope that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live.

My message is hope and the promise of freedom.
