It’s been a while since we’ve seen his face, but so-called “Hot Convict” Jeremy Meeks is out of prison and ready for his close up.

In 2015, Meeks was sentenced to over two years in prison for gun possession, but just before going behind bars, he signed a modeling contract with White Cross Management. Now that he’s out, Meeks has revealed he is excited about his future career.

“I want to thank my family and everybody for all your love, support and prayers,” Meeks captioned the photo of himself and manager Jim Jordan on Wednesday. “I’m overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead. I’m ready @jimjordanphotography and @whitecrossmanagement #jeremymeeks #jimjordan #whitecrossmanagement.”

Although the specifics of the current opportunities aren’t clear, before Meeks went to prison, Jordan told ABC that his client had potential endorsement deals with “modeling agencies around the world,” as well as “reality-show interests.”

Endorsement deals aside, Meeks looks to be enjoying his freedom. Since his release, he’s posted a handful of photos, one of which shows him in a small boat on a lake as he spends time with his (not pictured) kids.
