Bio

I have spent four decades working in the Information Technology area, both as a software consultant, and as a freelance journalist, author and translator, contributing to several magazines.
I currently live in UK and work as a Lead Consultant for a SAP partner company in London.
I’m now specializing in translating thriller and science fiction novels.

Software Consultant experience
• Dozens of projects, in roles ranging from Programmer to Project Manager.
• During the last 15 years, I’ve been working mainly around SAP technology, both as a Certified Teacher and as a Senior Consultant.
