I studied English and screenwriting and worked as copywriter, proofreader and translator for the genre publisher La Factoría de Ideas.

I've published more than thirty short stories since the year 2000, many featured in fantasy and science fiction anthologies and magazines. For the last six years I've been administrator of, one of the main fantasy, science fiction and horror communities in Spain.

I'm coeditor of the science fiction magazine InterNova and colaborate as Language Coordinator, transcriber and translator for TED - Ideas Worth Spreading, maintain the Word Stats plugin for WordPress and moderate several online communities on Reddit and IRC.

I try to promote interest in transhumanism, space exploration, philanthropy and independent publishing through the social networks.
