I worked as creative a copywriter in my own agency for 18 years, the last years I started to study for be a professional writer, first, in short stories, screenplays and novels. This is my first screenplay and I have been working on it during almost two years. The lion by the altar, is an expression of my self, in many ways that actually I can’t define easily. I love movies and books. Be a creative person awakes my desire of develop my own voice. I’m married and have two grounded children and a dog, I love to cook and of course to write.
