Moreno was born on August 15, 1962 in Tinajas. He earned a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Colima. For his dedication and commitment, Anguiano was awarded the "Peña Colorada" award, given to the student with the highest average grades, for the Class of 1986.

Anguiano was invited by the Friedrich Nauman Foundation (Fundación Friedrich Nauman) to represent Mexico in courses in Government and Fiscal Decentralization, held in Germany in 1997 and 2001, respectively.

In 1990, Anguiano joined the Institutional Revolutionary Party, and in 1992, he entered public service as the municipal treasurer of Colima City, serving a two-year term. He was then the chief accountant for the Congress of the State of Colima during its LI and LII Legislatures, from 1995 to 1999; he left to serve as the CEO of Agrotecnología de Colima, S.A. de C.V., an agrotechnology business. In 2000, he began a two-year stint as the municipal treasurer of Manzanillo.

Voters elected Anguiano from the third district of Colima, covering the southern portion of the city of Colima, to the LIV Legislature of the State Congress of Colima, which met between 2003 and 2006. Anguiano chaired the Finance and Budget Commission and sat on those for Rural Development and Fisheries; Planning, Tourism and Economic Development; and Human Rights.

In 2006, the capital city elected Anguiano again, this time as its municipal president for a three-year term. Colima City thus returned to PRI rule after three years of a PAN mayorship under Leoncio Morán Sánchez.

Governor of ColimaEdit

During the 2009 Colima state election, Anguiano won 50.9 percent of the vote for governor, beating Sen. Martha Sosa Govea of the National Action Party (PAN). He served a six-year term and was replaced by Interim Governor Ramón Pérez Díaz, as the 2015 elections were annulled and a new governor was not installed until February 2016.
