Francis Aguilar's Biography

Member Info

Jul 2008

I'm a poet, an overidealistic, hyperactive rock n roll fan. I used to dream of making it big as a rock musician during my early years. Unfortunately, I failed music school and I got disillusioned by my environment. So I'm the feeling brought by music to another level and I'm also hoping to make it big not just in music but in literature as well. So I'm currently a poet, and I do readings every Monday at the Absinth Club in Greenbelt,Makati City, Metro Manila.
