I love telling stories. I love creating worlds so I can populate them with my vision. I want to create futuristic scenarios that capture my readers’ imagination, and allow me to present my ideas in an exhilarating fashion. It's quite impossible not to inspire awe with tales set in the far future. Much of it is novel. Much of it is speculation.

What's a more formidable test for human nature than travelling the cosmos? Surrounded by limitless nothingness, it's a matter of adapting. At least for me it would be. The cosmos itself isn't exactly welcoming to us humans, yet there's no malice out there, but so much beauty. Even this state I call 'nothingness' isn't truly void. Within the parameters of our understanding a lot out there among the stars is as yet beyond comprehension. Therefore, I prefer to focus on the future. There's so much inspiration in the realm of space exploration, technology, and philosophy. Combine these three very different subject matters, and the result would be good science-fiction. Always, always, always, an author should ask a question.

"Science-fiction is the convergence of escapism and philosophy."

In the stories I tell, you'll find that a lot of my inspiration comes from Greek mythology. It always fascinated me to read about Olympians and the Titans, Centaurs and Pegagus. In my first novel this is very apparent. When I was a kid, I loved two anime shows in particular. Ulysses 31 and Captain Future. I still do.

Ulysses 31 is a great example of the kind of stories I want to tell. It's a beautiful blend between Greek mythology and science-fiction storytelling.
