Speaker Spotlight: Erick Castillo

Erick Castillo is the co-founder of Disciplined Monkey Studios, a geek culture site that started off as a podcast broadcast and has developed into a video game, movie, and technology reviewer that has also started to add simple lifestyle articles based on the different staff members age and their life situation. Also taking on the role of central hub of as many independent geek culture sites as they meet the writers or editors at different events, for example www.theotakuologist.com www.kryptodies.comand www.racialicious.com. Mr. Castillo moved to San Diego in 1998 from Tijuana Mexico and graduated from Chula Vista Senior High and attended South Western College for 3 semesters, and in July of 2007 with his Co-Founder Jorge Alduenda they launched the website the day prior to San Diego Comic Con and have continued to grow exponentially over the last few years. Since starting the site Erick has had to become a writer, editor for both sound and video, public relations and media manager for the site to fit the growing needs of his company. In a podcast world filled with celebrity podcasters like Adam Carolla, Marc Maron, Chris Hardwick, and so on it makes it necessary to look for either a more unique angle or find a way to appeal to an audience.
