Creative Writing

I love to write because:


  • I can express

  • I get to learn

  • It helps me to see clearly

  • It makes me feel good

  • It makes it easier to remember


I began writing when I was a child. At school, teachers would often ask me to read my essays to the class after being reviewed. I was once chosen as the school’s candidate for a national writing contest that was sponsored by Coca-Cola.


Encouraged by some friends and teachers, I entered several contests during my adolescence. At age 17, I won a regional competition that had been organized to promote young talents.


As an adult, I kept writing. There has been fiction, non-fiction, and fictional reality. I usually write short stories, essays, and poetry.

From 2003 to 2010, I was involved in several musical projects. Besides doing vocals and/or playing guitar, I wrote songs for all of them: Horror Dementia, Conde Orlok, Vertigen, Go Ape, and LSD Ravens.


Although I mostly write for myself, I’ve published part of my work at times. I’ve used several digital platforms: DeadJournal, LiveJournal, Blogger, Wordpress, etc.


I used to share my words at times on social media: Fotolog, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram...


Although I ended up deleting most of my work from the Internet, I still keep most of the stuff that I’ve written. These are some of the collections I’ve authored:


  • A Hanging Garden

  • Crucified Dreams

  • Dreams

  • Innocence

  • Toni Sees The World

  • Vertigen


In recent years, I’ve written the epilogue for Punt i Coma (Masferrer, Gemma. Barcelona: Editorial Omicron, 2012). Additionally, Tablet Magazine has published me.


Since 2016, I’ve been writing this blog. Here, I touch on several topics about life and work, including:


  • Languages & Communication

  • Personal & Business Relations

  • Smoking Cessation

  • Technology

  • Vegetarianism


Some of these blog entries are also available on LinkedIn.
