Welcome to my blog and thank you for checking it out. If you’re here I suppose you would like to know something about me.
I was born in Malta a few decades ago, and spent my childhood running barefoot on beaches that unfortunately don’t exist in their natural state anymore.
Since then I have lived, studied and worked in various European cities. Since 2008 I have stayed put in Brussels. But the sea stays in my blood.
I am the proud father (and let’s face it, which father isn’t?) of three beautiful daughters, who by their mere existence have already taught me more than I will ever teach them.
Throughout my life I have been lucky to have done several things. I have read for Archaeology and spent many blissful (and blistering) moments crouched on the ground looking at the past. Currently, however, my work is linked with the future – more specifically that of the biggest political project in human history: the European Union. In between these two ends I have set up, run and sold my own business, taught History and Geography at a secondary school and worked as a translator.
In the end, however, writing remains one of my biggest passions and the red thread that connects everything that I have done so far. That is how inter*alia was born: as a place where the writer in me can bring together all my interests and passions and share them with the world.
