I was incarcerated for 20 years. When I was in prison, I decided to use the time and the opportunity to turn my life around.

I signed up for every program I could, from courses in computers and web design to self-help groups like Narcotics Anonymous and AA. I started a record label with Juan Gambino to spread the message that people can change.

I’ve only been out for 18 months, but I’ve been blessed. I got involved in the construction business and met a woman who has become my rock. She has multiple degrees and a successful career.

New Mexico has a law that says people who are on parole or probation can’t vote. In the last election cycle, I couldn’t vote, but I was determined to participate in other ways.
