I have been an avid sci-fi fan since as far back as I can remember, both in terms of reading and film. For me, science fiction is about possibilities and exploring what it means to be human. It's about exploring implications and ethics of new or future technology and its effect on culture and society. It's a way of exploring the very nature of our existence- philosophy in the form of storytelling.

There is a special place in my heart for Star Wars... I never got into reading the books, I'm just a big, big fan of the films. I've always loved Star Wars since the first time my brother and I saw it as little kids but it wasn't until I started introducing the world of Star Wars to my nephew that my love of Star Wars transformed into something a bit geekier!
