    Creativity through the lens of a vocational school teacher in a maximum security prison

    "Being creative to me is trying to find the solutions to problems that might work a little bit better than what's out there."

    R.J. works inside one of the largest maximum-security prisons in the north eastern part of the United States. He began his corrections career nearly 20 years ago as a corrections officer and has listened for thousands of hours to hundreds of incarcerated men's stories. Despite the darkness behind the walls of concrete, steel, and paint, R.J. has witnessed many stories of hope and transformation. 
    R.J. is the visionary behind www.GetFreeAndStayFree.com which shares stories of hope, information, and transformation told only by those who are or have been in prison. 
    R.J. believes that if these stories are made readily available to the prison populations nationwide, that many lives can be changed for the better. The purpose of this public-safety initiative is to encourage and empower those who are currently incarcerated to become honorable and productive returning citizens.
