My last position was Creative Director in Advertising. My specialization was corporate videos. As for my fiction writing escapades I write mainly Speculative Fiction - a blend of hard and soft Science Fiction. I was inspired by authors like Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein; suffice to say that you will understand the nature of my work - mature, advanced and exploratory.

Thank You for visiting My Author Page. All the best.
