Hello, beautiful people! Let me introduce myself...

My name is Angelo Aguilar (also known by various names such as esAngeloAguilar like my social networks, Gallo, Mr. Rooster... Rebel CBK... Foforitho... 'Emo-rroides' because i was part of the emo culture... you know what? Forget the last three names. I was young and clearly a stupid teenager). I'm a mexican hobbyist digital artist, landscape / nature / architecture photographer and a published author who currently resides in Monterrey, Mexico. 

As the solitary line above in the middle of the page says, I was born into a humble family on June 7, 1993, in the industrial municipality of Tlalnepantla de Baz, Estado de Mexico, and lived for over 10 years in a low-income area in Naucalpan de Juarez, also in Estado de Mexico.

Probably my favorite photo ever: Me at the entrance to Louvre Museum, Paris.

I adore being on nature. Hiking, swimming, rappelling... if i could i would like to live on a cabin in the middle of the forest. Of course, with internet service and a road for Amazon parcels. I also enjoy visiting new places... after being in France i'm in the urge to return backpacking to Europe and visit as many countries as possible. As i said before, i like to photograph architecture, landscape and nature so, whenever i'm out in 'the wild' or visiting a new place, i try to not miss the opportunity to take as many photos as possible. I'm currently using a massive Nikon P1000 camera and i have to say that it's fantastic! Heavy as hell... but what an amazing camera!

I enjoy soccer and running 10 - 15k's, in fact i used to do it a lot when i was younger. The biggest event in which I have participated so far is TOUGH MUDDER MONTERREY 2016, not only because the 20 kms and 25 obstacles, but also i broke my left arm a few months before the event at a soccer game. For music genre, i can listen almost at anything, but rock always will prevail! And for a pet, doggos are the best! Also I ADORE CRAFT BEER as much as I'M LOST WITH RED HAIRED GALS. Did i had to mention that? Not really... but also why not?

In the writing field, I love creating characters and their backgrounds, write sci-fi / horror stories for books, and if i combine those stories with something related to WWII and / or with a touch of dark / controversial themes, even better for me. Fun fact: i love writing sci-fi and horror, but my first published book was a teen drama school comedy for some reason.

PERSONAL PROJECTS

AND OTHER PROJECTS THAT I'VE BEEN PART

Since i was little kid, I've always had a liking for drawing and even a more special enthusiasm for the writing, having my first long story at the age of 8 for a book entitled 'Ellos también cuentan' (They also count), a book that was part of a cultural movement in 2002-2003 that sought to bring primary school children closer to literature. And in january, 2020, at the age of 26 and with the help of Letrame® Grupo Editorial, my first book called Verano de Nuevo!® was officially published in Spain, USA and latin america.

Verano de Nuevo!® is a 'light novel' of 2.5 kilograms and 580 pages full of teenager drama and stuff, being the life of a young man named Aiden during his first semester (third semester) in his new high school after having moved away from the city, finding himself a busy and caricature life in the company of his new friends.

Later that year, from March 11 to 15, and thanks to Escritores Independientes Capítulo Monterrey (EICAM), I had the opportunity to bring the book at the first major regional literature event that takes place here in Monterrey, The 2020 Edition of Feria Universitaria del Libro UANLeer®. Unfortunately, the event was greatly affected by the global pandemic that continues to be experienced, SARS-CoV-2. Being the same reason why later in the same year, the most important event of literature in the city, Feria Internacional del Libro Monterrey, was canceled, reason why the book could´nt be taken to a greater public for its exhibition. (Be safe everyone! And please follow all health security measures! (More info about Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in WHO.int)

 

For now, Verano de Nuevo!® can be found only in spanish either in physical version or eBook with the links that you can find here.

(I swear i'm not trying to sell you my book... BUT... if you are interested to get a copy of Verano de Nuevo!® you can simply click the name. Or also you can click here... or here!).

Yeah, i used MSN Spaces, Hi5 and Fotolog when i was a teenager... I mean, I did not use those platforms and there is no proof if I did. I also used Facebook, but back then it was mostly for local gossip instead of knowing what the hell is doing that friend of a friend who is friends with one of my friends that I haven't spoken to in years. But the really first thing i started doing on the internet (I swear... ) was broadcasting on my own web radio station called SexN'Drugs Rock Radio Streaming along with my father, one friend of him and three close friends of me back in 2011. Everything was easier to do back then, and as you can guess by the name of the station, we transmitted rock, punk, alternative and similar music genres, reaching over 1600 radio listeners in 8 different countries, such as United States, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Colombia, Peru, Chile and United Arab Emirates... Yeah, you read it right. United Arab Emirates. Don't ask me how, but there was always a user from that country listening to my radio, probably in the highest part of any of Abu Dhabi's skyscrapers.

Not gonna lie, this part of my life was actually fun. Imagine just a bunch of teenagers trying to be broadcasters that, in addition to music, we also talked a lot about random stuff like 'World Egg Day'... that actually exist and i recall it perfectly because it was the same day we launched the radio station, on a friday, October 7, 2011. We kept the transmissions of SexN'Drugs Rock Radio Streaming every monday, wednesday and friday (the day that i had my own show on air) for over a year until November, 2012. Unfortunately because external reasons beyond our reach we had to stop this fun and fantastic project, reaching the end of this adventure.

I really loved the SexN'Drugs Rock Radio Streaming idea. In fact, i was proud of it. A few years later, in 2015, i tried to bring back a similar project to SN'D RRS, this time under the name of AGM ONLINE RADIO STREAMING. However, the laws on the internet were at this point already a major impediment as it has been until today for content creators under the heavy fire of copyright claims.

 

Since I didn't have the resources to bring this project alive (money, time, licenses, legal paperwork, etc...) i just simply gave up on the idea of broadcast on the internet... but that didn't mean that I would stop uploading content to the network. I already had another project running by this time.
