Looks like Matthew Pisoni is not in Federal prison yet. Wonder why? Maybe it has something to do with being a white collar crime. Even if they stole more than 25 million!
He does have a BOP register # 07898-104

1. Don’t Die with Your Music Still in You
Serena: There’s something I have heard my father say too many times to count: “You will never regret what you do in life; you will only regret what you don’t do.” Everything I have ever done has taught me something, whether it worked out or not. Sometimes the takeaway is simply knowing what I don’t want. Notice whether you are moving toward or away from what excites you. If you pay attention and let yourself be guided by your intuition, you won’t have to worry about dying with your music inside of you.(Link)
