Randy Kearse grew up in the Farragut housing projects in what is now the trendy DUMBO section of Brooklyn, New York. In the late 1980’s crack cocaine hit the streets. Randy was in a unique position to see this, as he was selling it himself. Mr. Kearse was caught and went to federal prison for 15 years. During that time he did what many have not. He turned his life around and lived through example.

Randy Kearse has written several books. The most popular title is Changin’ Your Game Plan! How to Use Incarceration as a Stepping Store for SUCCESS. He has inspired others to not make the same mistakes he has. He lets people know that there can be and is life after prison.

Randy's story has been featured in several outlets such as The New York Times and The Colbert Report. This piece is different. It is a sound portrait of Randy telling his story in his own voice. I spoke with Randy last year and his positive attitude is contagious. You may find more information on Randy's website at http://www.randykearse.net.
