I inhabit two worlds: truth and lies.

With science I chisel towards truth, never knowing the statue’s form until the last marble drops. I’m a knowledge junkie and my fix is gaining those few seconds when I am the only one on Earth who knows this something new about the Universe.

Through my fiction, I am an unstoppable liar and lies can sometimes taste sweeter and stand grander than truth. The less truth the more delectable the lie, and there is no greater lie than speculative fiction.

I grew up in Toronto and now I make Zürich my base of operations. I recently finished my PhD. in computational astrophysics at the Institute for Computational Science in the University of Zürich, and I am an author of fantasy and science fiction.
