Trey Horton

“For I know the plans I have for you, the plans for you to prosper and succeed through my light.” This is a verse in the book of Jeremiah and is the basic motto for Trey Horton’s life.  Trey Horton is a complex and diverse individual; for instance throughout his life he never really knew or for that matter still doesn’t really know what his real objective in life is and is constantly in high speed pursuit of his metaphorical destination of happiness and fulfillment. He has found himself in situations many would find on sitcoms, dramas, or even horror films; and has many times recollected to himself “My life should be a show”. Although many of his friends agree; I don’t think any networks will be picking up the phone and requesting. Trey has had many ups and downs. He lived in Syracuse, NY for some time then moved to Concord, NC he’s used to hustle and bustle but has found enjoyment in this simple and rustic lifestyle. Trey a.k.a. Trey Charles is a self proclaimed fly guy and enjoys the “company” of the opposite gender, and they claim to like his. Basic summary of Trey Horton “Da Man”.
