Welcome to CarlosPenaNOW.com! A website built by fans for the fans. We started with a Twitter account under the name CarlosPenaCrew on December 26, 2010. Due to the popularity of that twitter, on June 8, 2011 we opened Pena Nation, a small website with up-to-date news, photos, & videos. The website also grew quickly, so on August 20, 2011 we relaunched the site and twitter under the new name, Carlos Pena NOW. The name sums up our goal, to keep you updated on Carlos right now with the latest news, photos, videos, and more of Carlos PenaVega. Our focus is on sharing the latest news, appearances, and projects, and helping new fans learn more about Carlos and his many, many talents.
Today, because we are 100% run by fans with full-time jobs, our most timely updates can be found on our Twitter, @CarlosPenaNOW. However, we also maintain this site with Carlos' ongoing projects and occasional blog posts, and most importantly, bring together all of Carlos' and CPN's social streams in one place. Our YouTube and Tumblr accounts are also still open as well.
