Mauricio Angarita, The Thumb Fighter

Tell us a little about what you do.

Out of our Digital Music Strategy Garage we work with main stakeholders in the music industry. Whether it is a platform, an artist or a music label, we do whatever it takes to create the best experience for fans. Our goal is to connect the dots and establish and strengthen the artist’s digital structure to potentialize their career.

What inspires/motivates you to get out of bed?
The music and the endless opportunities to make a positive impact on both society and the music industry.

What is the one thing you can’t live without?
Let’s say 3! Soccer aka Futbol, Vinyl records and my PS5.

Where do your brightest ideas come from?
Collaboration, having spaces where ideas are heard.

Where is your favorite place to decompress & unwind?
My house

When do you feel your best, and what do you do to stay in the vibration?
Keep going and have a great soundtrack in the background.

Why did you choose Ampersand Studios as your workspace?
The vibe of the space is fantastic. Ampersand is a place where I can concentrate on creating my best work and be able to be and stay motivated because of the environment.

Tell us something we don’t know about you.
I’m Colombian-American, been calling Miami home for the last 20 years. Married a Brazilian- American, have a 5 year-old daughter and a 2 year-old son. If it wasn’t clear above, I LOVE MUSIC.


That’s the kind of passion we would hope to see in every business. Thank you, Mauricio, for sharing some of that fire! You can learn more about The Thumb Fighter by visiting their website.
