Angelo Pisano is a successful entrepreneur, author and artist. He loves weekend hikes in the lovely Colorado Rockies Mountains and recently learned Microsoft SQL Server database development.
He grew up in Brentwood, Long Island with two brothers, a mother and a stepfather. As a child, he was inquisitive and smart, used it for criminal purposes and didn't conform well with authority. If there was something he wanted, he took it and went to jail for stealing and drug use at a young age.
He served over ten years on three non violent indeterminate terms in New York State prisons, 97-R-7285, 03-A-5071 and 07-A-5744 and was finally released on July 10th, 2011.
Throughout his incarceration, Angelo was clean from drugs and free from stealing and focused most of his time on his natural talent, art. As a natural observer, over the years he witnessed patterns of abuse naïve and unsuspecting new convicts faced at the hands of veteran prisoners. A lot of our jail violence can be avoided if inmates were trained on what to expect while away from family and friends, and how to engage with others under those harsh prison conditions. The physical and sexual abuse, setups for extortion, bullying and tormenting, and thievery would stop if they just shifted their thinking. It seemed there was no safe place these men could learn how to protect themselves from predatory inmates and no source to help them prepare for their life behind bars.
Angelo kept a journal during those long years and after his release, he decided to give back to the younger generation as he believes in a quality education. He wrote PRISON GUIDE: SURVIVAL SECRETS REVEALED as his way to protect future convicts, keep them safe, and help them return to their families as quickly as possible. His literary work helps others control their time wisely while behind bars for a safe and successful quick return home.
