writer, musician, artist
Angel Eduardo is a writer, musician, photographer, and designer based in New York City. He is a staff writer and content creator for idealist.org, as well as a columnist for the Center for Inquiry, where he writes on science, communication, skepticism, and morality. He also serves on the Advisory Board for the Foundation Against Intolerance & Racism (FAIR).
His writing has been featured in Newsweek, Areo Magazine, Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood, and The Caribbean Writer, among other print and online publications. He holds a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from CUNY Hunter College, and is currently working on a book-length memoir project.
His photographs have been exhibited in art shows throughout New Jersey, and have been used as cover art for books—most notably in Personal Effects: Essays on Memoir, Teaching and Culture in the Work of Louise DeSalvo for Fordham University Press, which makes use of his photograph, “Early Bird.”
He has been writing, performing, and recording music since the age of 15, and has been intimately involved in every creative facet of his projects, from songwriting, producing, mixing and mastering to designing and overseeing the creation of album artwork, concert posters, and merchandise.
Angel is an artist inspired to inspire. Be it with music, writing, photography, or design, his hope is to provide others with a sense of solace, a feeling of inspiration, a window into new perspectives, and an opportunity for growth—just as the work of others did for him throughout his life.
In the social realm, Angel advocates for a compassionate, honest, and civil approach to discourse, even when we’re incentivized to bare our teeth and dig in our heels. Through his work he hopes to foster a more productive dialogue on the topics of the day, all bolstered by his own six words of advice:
Be kind; we’re all first drafts.
