I graduated during the recession and worked as a freelancer in publishing and media while doing many other different jobs. I wrote for various papers and magazines including The Times of Malta, Sunday Circle, and It-Torċa amongst others. I was then appointed Executive Chairman of the National Book Council under a Labour Government. Under my tenure, I expanded and built the National Book Council into a legally-recognised government entity with a significant budget, introduced Public-Lending Rights, convened the first Authors’ Congress and rebranded the Malta Book Fair increasing its sales to record highs. Today, the National Book Council boasts of an efficient and dedicated workforce and various important responsibilities. I’m also proud that with my colleagues Andrew Sciberras and Ingram Bondin, I have edited and written various laws which have been approved by parliament including the anti-censorship reforms and the media and defamation law which effectively abolished criminal libel.

My Master’s degree is in history, but I am working on a Phd thesis on the philosophy of history. I have written various history books. I’m a Hegelian.
