21 Questions: Airik Aguirre

Airik Aguirre
Zombies, Zombies, Zombies

I wanted to point out that I am jealous of this man and envy him at the same time, he has one of the most successful zombie sites on the planet. If I could steal one ounce of is energy to the attention to detail and dedication to his ever popular site. Maybe someday he will put me on his payroll after he and his site reach record numbers. So as always I encourage you all to check out his site, but don't like it too much... cause I want you to come back to me. Don't make me use my Jedi Mind Trick! 

-Tell us about your career and what you are currently working on or involved with?
As of right now I still have a day job which is pretty out there. I work in a mental health hospital where we take care of mentally disabled violent adults. It does get a little tiring doing it day to day so as soon as I get home I work on my Zombies Everywhere site. Home of all things awesome and zombie related! We also have a Facebook page!


-Is this what you thought you would be doing with your life, what was your first passion?
I never thought I would be perusing the whole zombie writing thing, but as soon as I wrote my first article for my blog, I knew it was something I was very passionate about. I just want to bring the world all the fun and excitement that zombie movies have brought me over the years.

-To whom do you credit your success to, who gives or gave you the most support?
It all goes to my fans! They are super supportive and honestly I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for them and all their love.  Thanks everyone!

-If you could meet or work with [living or dead], who would that be and why?
